    Your comment at 4:09 made a very serious allegation about Dennis Clarke receiving his full salary and also receiving NIS sickness benefits. Are you absolutely sure? This man is a member of the NIS BOARD.

  2. Erice
    I can assure you that if the present NUPW executive change that government shall be taking a long look at that training fund. What is amazing is what has happenned to the NUPW. It depends on gov’t for rent; it depends on gov’t for training; Dennis loves to get finds from gov’t agencies to fly all about; Ma Money is chair of a constituency council; Ma Money used funds to support gov’t community programs.

  3. The latest news is that Cedric Murrel is no longer running for the post of 1st V.P. Some speculation is that Ma Money saw him as dead weight and dropped him. Another speculation is that he knew he shall lost to Manasseh King. Icanni is just hot air. The biggest question to the candidates is who shall cedric give that support at the airport to. Cedric brought home Ma Money with 52 votes in that box last time. Can he do it again by backing another candidate. This airport box is key to a Ma Money victory; any shift shall be devastating. Another question is whether the people at the Barbados Community College box shall support Ma Money overwhelmingly again. That box was also critical in his victory he got 46 votes to the opposition 9. Can Margo influence the BCC to vote as a block again this time. A shift away from Ma Money here too shall be devastating.

  4. The Office of Public Sector Reform is not going to achieve anything of note with the current Director, Michael Archer at the helm. He is only interested in getting his salary pegged at that of a Permanent Secretary. His latest request for such was by letter to the Head of the Civil Service dated 1st February, 2013. He is constantly in the news media trying to promote himself to get a PS salary.

    All the while , I am told by credible sources (indeed a tape recording as well), that he constantly remain in his office behind closed doors and tries to ‘sexually exploit” the female staff under his supervision. When they refuse his dastardly advances he seek to have them transferred.

    OPSR under his control is a hell hole. I note that Caswell Franklyn visits this site. It would be interesting to hear his take on OPSR and its functioning now that Senator Sandiford has added her voice to have change effected there.

    Now that NUPW elections are in the air it would be good to hear the candidates share their thoughts on these state of affairs in OPSR.

  5. The only people who expected public sector reform to go somewhere were those who were trying to sell ice and snow to the folks who live in the north. A reform system or process is set up and it is totally controlled by permanent secretaries who themselves need reforming. The Ps we have today are a bunch of political poppets dancing to the tune of any political sound. Even when they are appointed it makes no difference.

    All of them should be on contract; thereby giving the opportunity for them to return to their substantive posts when it is realized how incompetent they really are.

  6. Caswell if I am wrong then the UNION is wrong —you have been putting so much licks in CEDRIC MURRELL that he has drop out of the elections —but look at his history ,he always run away when he see defeat coming –Murrell is a coward , a crooked coward he just got what he has been doing to others all the time ,talk good infront of you and then stick you in the back –Sir ROY was kind to him ,but dog name Murrell kicking him in the back now –MURRELL -walter trick you in 1996 and again in 2013,but remember that in2011 you back raise some youngers that went to cancass at the airport –JESSIE has out smartJAMES

  7. Caswell you know Denis is a crook ask him ,Walter and CEDRIC ,what they do with the gifts that they have been receiving on the UNION behave when they do over seas ===to their homes —HE got both NISand a full salary for working half day

  8. Lemuel,
    You have analysed the problem well – INCOMPETENCE. Under the current Director of OPSR this is what is being displayed. Can you believe over by us at the Ministry of Housing , Mr. Archer called the Dep. PS and told her he will assist her staff in preparing procedural manuals. She quite rightly asked if he has staff trained in the area – HE LIED and said YES. When he sent one of his male officers to assist , the man was out to sea. The Dep. PS immediately called Mr. Archer and told him not to send back that officer – imagine Mr. Archer then tried to send another officer who had never produced a manual of any sort !

    When asked why is he compromising the image of OPSR and its staff in such manner – Mr. Archer unabashfully declared it is all about his IMAGE and intention to show his work and effort to help deserves a promotion to Permanent Secretary level.

    Yep , it pays to be INCOMPETENT !!

  9. I hear that Dennis the menace organized passes into the airport. This is cause for alarm because last elections Anthony Johnson, manager of the airport, refused passes for Ronnie Geaves-Thorpe and others. Is it true that guards at the airport cuss Ma Money and he ran from the airport panting. After tricking those airport workers, Ma Money returned to the scene of the lying crime only to be confronted by nuff cuss.

  10. Another interesting development,Ma Money is telling people that he shall not be running again. Members do not be fooled, he said the same thing last election.

  11. LEMUEL–if Walter Mamoney Maloney tell you any thing then you better beleive that your grand mother is still a Vigin,
    What has he to show for the ten years he was president —Running away of Joseph Goddard
    Caswell Franklyn
    Cutting up Dalkeith PROPERTY,
    CREDIT CARD crook .
    CELL phone -6200dollars

  12. cont-Payments to BIDC for an old unused building .
    Medicare money gone .
    Medicare gone to ICB
    Same sex in the office
    promotion of side kick SOPHIA LOWE
    promotiom of Denis side kick GRACE,
    USE of the Union after work as a sex pad
    FIGHTING with d watchman Agard over a woman
    Sell out of the Union to the DLP

  13. Walter and Denis tell us how much money did you all received as kick backs from the draftman ,for that never to be have Medical center .
    I has just been told that the additional positions created at NUPW are for Margo Bannister and MR,Suzette(BUBBY and BOTTOM feel up)Harper,Denis has taken care of his side kick Grace Hall

  14. Members remember APRIL 3, 2013; come out in your numbers and VOTE. Someone is telling me that this election shall end up in the courts. I hope not. The last election results had some far out boxes that could have been manipulated. When the Chief Electoral Officer Dennis the menace is the Chief Campaigner for Ma Money as Forbes Burnham told Errol Barrow after losing in the 1970s that election would not have been lost by this Camrade. Ma Money wins in specific boxes where there are little or no public servants; a word to the wise is sufficient for Dennis the Menace. Remember Den Den you shall be named singularly. Cell phones do work, as you would say “my friend”. Shall Den Den steal another one; we wait and see.

  15. Members look carefully at who is manning certain boxes. Ma Money won sanitation box which was manned by Den Den the menace; NUPW H’Q box where a mysterious 64 came to vote for Ma Money; BCC box where the only person known in B’dso is Ma Money 46 votes; six roads library where 36 mysterious people turn up to vote for Ma Money. These are the Den Den set up boxes. Get your cameras out. Den Den we also know about people voting for people after 4 pm your conspirators are speaking out.

  16. LEMUEL–I wrote on this blog a longtime ago that there was crooks working during that election to ensure that the Treasurer ,1ST,2RD and 3rdVice presidents did not win and that was acheived ,the only UNION or place in d world were people voted after elections were closed —
    Denis and Walter has back raised Cedric ,two crooks out smart d third crook ,last elections Cedric was talking good with Ronnie thorpe greaves but when all the fellows went to d airport CEDRIC and DENIS got their friend to refused them entry so they could not cancas . know one dog has turn on the next

  17. Akanni you will be next ,Walter will use you like he did last election for the transportation and then cut you loose –see what he did to ANNE MARIE BURKE ,he used her to signed checks and undermind the former Teasurerand then cut her loose ,she did Denis and Walter nasty work ,i recall Walter saying to me that he had her setup to destroy Caswell and she did just that –now i hope the the auditor will audit both NUPW and CTUSABhe shall see what happens

  18. Update on NUPW Canvassing action. Yesterday, Ma Money and company were given a royal welcome at the airport. Today, the opposition was turned away because Joe Johnson said he could not accommodate them. Now Joe Johnson by virtue of Ma Money request would have known elections are on but Joe Johnson decided that his cawmere friend Ma Money MUST win.

  19. Lemuel Those who were turned away must look carefully to see if he had break the trade union act and then act accordingly

    • Candidates opposing Maloney must be very careful that this election is not stolen from them by the union allowing retired members to vote. Full membership of the union ceases on the termination of employment. Thereafter, a person is eligible for associate membership but somehow these persons are allowed to vote and at times skew the election. Forewarned is forearmed.

  20. What has me is that Joseph Johnson did the same thing last time and seems to think he can get away with it. This man is a boss; he banned Caswell from the airport, although Caswell has members there; now he is trying to ensure that no one other than Ma Money and his team speak to the workers there. This is a crucial box. But I hear Ma Money shall lose it this time; everywhere there seems to be the same refrain “we dun wid dah man Ma Money.”

  21. Caswell i do recall that last elections persons like Ulric Denny ,Errol Gay,Charles buddy skeete ,Cecil Drakes and myself voted all of the above voted for Walter except me because my son did say to us what was going on at the Union –Walter and Denis with the Cell phone and d $10000,dollars for his son ,
    Now walter and Denis has diss Drakes ,ANNEMARIE BURKE and Cedric Murrell–in the Murrell I am told that after DERECK ALLEYNE put some warm lashes on him last saturday about the Medicare -WALTER then said to the meeting ,that he had no part of it and threw Murrell under the bus –MMurrell has since drop out of the elections


    • Erice

      You are losing me here. What nonsense are you telling people on BU? Trustees are only empowered to act on a resolution of the National Council or a general meeting of members. When did any of those two bodies authorise cutting up the union’s property, in accordance with Rule 13 of the union’s Rules and Standing Orders. I smell something fishy here.

    • Caswell

      Can you confirm that Danny Gill and co were not given permission to canvass the airport membership but Maloney got the privilege?

    • David

      I spoke to one of my members who was on duty when Maloney went to canvass. He assured me that Maloney was allowed free access. When I heard that others was not granted that privilege, I checked with Danny Gill who confirmed that he was not allowed access to canvass NUPW members.

      I have encountered similar problems, the management and board at the Airport only want to deal with Maloney and air-head Clarke because those two accept anything that is told to them without question.

  23. David:
    I spoke to someone close to the person who accompanied Danny Gill to the airport. The person said that they were told that Mr. Gill and Mr. Bostic encountered a Mr. Green from the NUPW outside of Mr. Johnson’s office. Mr. Green was still there when both men came out after being denied access by Mr. Joseph Johnson who sent out his DECISION from a meeting via the receptionist on the phone.

    To the PRO of GAIA credit, Mr. Goddard, he did come and offered to place Mr. Gill’s team flyers on the notice boards inside. He cited the fact that the airport was a security area. But, obviously someone knew that an ELECTION WAS ON. They also knew that people normally come to canvass. Why was it necessary to be”clearing” groups according to what side of the bed Mr. Johnson got off of that morning.

    Right from the start of this campaign someone observed that ONLY MA MONEY AND HIS TEAM SHALL BE ALLOWED IN THE AIRPORT. But Johnson, there more than one way to skin a cat.

  24. LEMUEL -I wrotr that last election Ronnie Greaves-Thorpe and Manassah Kng suffer at hands of the same Johnson who allowed Mamoney and the crooked band to enter but denied the others -so after general elections when crooked Maloney went to the press talking about selling vote he knew what he was saying –i wrote on that —
    Caswell chek the UNION Financill statement for 2110 and you will see the note .

  25. Thanks Caswell, final question.

    Is right of access by NUPW operatives in the context of the imminent elections discretionary or is there a right of access given that there is a bargaining unit at GAIA.

    • David

      None of the candidates have a right to access the Airport. Access is at the discretion of management. It is clear that management has demonstrated a preference for Maloney. There are comfortable with the incompetence that currently exists at NUPW.

  26. David
    Caswell’s comment is interesting. Could it be that Johnson has been instructed by his DLP handlers only to allow the Ma Money team in. If that is the case poor Johnson only singing for his supper.

  27. Lemuel

    You are now understanding this thing. Government has a vested interest in controlling the union, and they know that their best bet is to have their poppet Mamoney there to control things for them.

  28. Caswell, you are not getting me into anything. I am just standing like a watchman during this NUPW election.

The blogmaster dares you to join the discussion.
