The Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC) cancels its Annual May Day March and Rally usually held on 1st May owing to COVID-19. This year it would have been held next Friday.
According to the GTUC, government’s guidelines and safety concerns about public gathering surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) would negate the sort of March and Rally usually held to commemorate the event.
GTUC will however kick off the Labour Week (26th April to 1st May) with the customary wreath laying ceremony at the statue of Hubert National Critchlow, in the Parliament Buildings compound, Brickdam, on Sunday 26th April at 4:30 p.m. Two persons, the General Secretary and President, will participate in the event and a message will be delivered.
This year’s theme is “Economic, Political and Social Transformation Post COVID-19.”
