This Thursday is the by-election for the post of 2nd Vice-President at the Bermuda Public Services Union. Polls open at 0830hrs and close at 1730hrs at the BPSU HQ.
As I understand it the role of 2nd Vice-President involves overseeing union affairs and support the employees of BHB. The individual serves on various high-level committees representing employer/employee interests, including negotiations. In the absence of the President and 1st Vice-President the individual assumes their roles.
Over the last week and a bit I contacted both candidates and asked them if they would be willing to answer a series of questions from me which I would then post on the blog to help raise awareness of the election and what the respective candidates were all about. I have decided to give each candidate their own thread, more for ease of reading than anything else, both of which can be found below, in no particular order.
I am not endorsing either candidate, my only intention is to increase awareness about the election, the candidates and the cause of organised labour in Bermuda today. I hope to extend the same opportunity to other unions when I can. Furthermore I should just make it clear that the participation of both candidates on this blog does not mean that either of them subscribe to my far left politics.
