The Joint Trade Union Movement will march under the theme "We Demand Job Security and Protection of Workers" at Labour Day celebrations this coming Sunday.

At a Press Conference on Monday, JTUM Leader Ancel Roget called for the retrenchment of workers to stop immediately.

"The workers alone must not bear the brunt of the sacrifice in this hard, economic, challenging times."

BIGWU President Vincent Cabrera reiterated his comrade's statement for the retrenchment to stop. He further claimed the working class is under threat.

"The working class is suffering from industrial terrorism of the employer class."

Sunday also marks Father's Day and Mr. Cabrera said the working class must come out to show support for the man the union considers the 'father of the nation.'

"Butler is the father of the nation more than anybody else. So Father's Day, all fathers ought to be there."

During last year's celebrations, The Joint Trade Union Movement and the National Trade Union Centre clashed in Fyzabad.

This time however, Mr. Roget doesn't foresee any problems since he said all the unions should be concerned about the issues affecting the working class.

During the Labour Day celebrations, the Joint Trade Union Movement will make an announcement they say it will be in the interest of the working class.
