New CSA President excited, ready to work

New CSA President, Yvonne Edwin, has said that she is excited and ready to work.

Edwin has been declared  the new President of the Saint Lucia Civil Service Association, according to unofficial results of elections today for a new executive of the trade union.

Edwin, from the Department of Fisheries, confirmed that she had unofficially been declared President.

Speaking shortly before 10PM, she said she could not say what her margin of votes were as it had not been officially announced.

Asked  what it took to be voted into office, Edwin said she had offered herself and gained the support of those she wanted to serve.

“They were the ones who went out to vote and make their voices heard,” Edwin asserted.

Edwin recalled that her campaign was based on change which she saw that the CSA needed.

She explained that those who supported her had the same view.

Edwin reiterated earlier assertions that the trade union had become politicized and divided.

“CSA is an organization made up of workers and of course they would have their own parties to which they are affiliated, but what we saw was a clear cut division,” she said.

She promised as CSA President to bring persons together.

“That is what a union is established for,” Edwin observed.

She promised to do her best, while acknowledging that she had a challenging task ahead.

Edwin expressed the opinion that there would be resistance from within.

However she was of the view that calling members together and getting their views on the way forward was the way to go.

“It really cannot me about me and what I want,” Edwin declared.

She said it was her intention to represent the workers and specifically, the members of the CSA.

Edwin spoke of the need to concentrate on the issues at hand and try to resolve them.

“The members should be the focus in anything you do,” she asserted.

    It’s a pity we don’t have political discount cards with such negative comments being made, typical of you Negroes. Why don’t we give them a chance to work before criticize.

    Congratulations miss csa president. Your achievement through the democratic process surely have broken the hearts of anti labour hacks which is sad to say the least. It is beyond me why some people bring partisanship in everything. This is so retrogressive and confrontational.
