Marvin Mora was selected as the mew president of the National Trade Union Congress of Belize (NTUCB) during the union’s annual general meeting in Caye Caulker over the weekend.
Mora, who was formerly the union’s second vice president and is the vice president of the Belize Energy Workers Union, has been active and vocal on a number of issues. Most recently, Mora has been vocalizing the union’s support for cane farmers, even participating in the protest on the steps of the National Assembly a few weeks ago.
Christian Workers Union President, Audrey Matura Shepherd was selected to replace Mora as second vice president.
Several other NTUCB members have retained their positions, including Adelida Guerra, NTUCB vice president and Kathleen Flowers, the union’s education director.
Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU) President, Luke Palacio is now a councilor to the union, along with several new trustees. The NTUCB will release a full list of their new executive in the week.
