NTUCB condemns PetroCaribe Bill

By Alexis R. Milan, Staff Reporter

The National Trade Union Congress of Belize (NTUCB) is considering taking some form of action in protest of the recently passed PetroCaribe Bill, its President, Marvin Mora said.

According to Mora, they made several suggestions as possible displays of opposition against the Bill during their executive meeting on Tuesday night.
He added, however, that they have not made a final decision, and as such, he was unable to say what those suggestions were.

Mora was able to say, though, that the union categorically condemns the passing of the PetroCaribe Bill in the House of Representatives last week.

Mora said the union’s rejection of the Bill is based on the fact that any loan greater than $10 million taken out by the government must first get the approval of the parliament.

According to Mora, the union will meet again next week and will come to a decision as to what course of action, if any, they will be willing to take.
