The Joint Trade Union Movement has kept its promise to boycott what it calls the 'one percenters' in Trinidad and Tobago.

JTUM represents an average of 48,000 members, their families and communities.

President General Ancel Roget says this massive spending power which his Union plans on using for supporting local business and entrepreneurs, not from the one percent.

He notes that the one percent have no problem getting foreign exchange unlike the rest of the country.

The JTUM boss says all their support will now go the way of small and medium businesses. He read his anti-shopping list of businesses they will be boycotting.

The JTUM leader is calling on citizens to stay clear of groceries and use markets where they can maximise their purchasing power towards improving the lives of local producers.
