Something big coming, says Franklyn

General secretary of Unity Workers’ Union (UWU), Caswell Franklyn, says a major development is on the horizon in the ongoing nurses’ strike.

However, he did not say what it is or exactly when it will be.

“Not yet,” he said yesterday, “but it’s going to be big. I can’t give any more details right now.”

The UWU is embroiled in a nine-week nurses’ strike, which started with a handful of disgruntled health professionals but soon grew to include almost 200. To date, there have been cancelled talks, two protest marches through The City and, according to Franklyn, a major impact on the health sector as nurses cry out for increased pay, better training opportunities, remuneration for degrees, better working conditions and health insurance.
