>FREEPORT – The joining of the re-established Commonwealth Union of Hotel Services and Allied Workers Union with the Trade Union Congress represents the beginning of “something very unique” for the umbrella union, officials said.
The formerly defunct Commonwealth Union (CUHSAW), which was revived in late 2009 announced on Thursday that it will be joining the ranks of the Trade Union Congres (TUC).
TUC president Obie Ferguson said he is pleased with the Commonwealth Union’s decision. He also noted that Customs and Immigration workers have also joined the organisation.
“I am satisfied that this is the beginning of something very unique,” he said.
