>THE ‘A’ Team representing Nicole Martin in the Bahamas Hotel Catering and Allied Workers Union election was “confident but not celebratory” at press time, as they waited for the final results, late last night.
Hubert Saunders, candidate for treasurer on the ‘A’ Team, said they were waiting on the last votes to be counted. That was not expected for another two hours, which would be about midnight.
Hundreds of workers gathered between Worker’s House, on Harrold Road, and the National Centre for Performing Arts on Shirley Street while ballots were being counted. The atmosphere was rowdy and festive, with the police having to intervene in an altercation between supporters at the Shirley Street polling station.
