The newly elected President of the Saint Lucia Civil Service Association (CSA), Yvonne Edwin, has asserted that she has no agenda.
Edwin has promised to work with her new executive in the interest of all members of the trade union, regardless of their political affiliation.
“There is nothing I will do to cause my members to be disadvantaged, as I will always ensure they are satisfied no matter what color or party they support,” she said.
“This is not about Yvonne Edwin. Yvonne Edwin is only the President,” the CSA President declared.
She explained that once she and her executive put the interests of members at the forefront, they cannot go wrong.
According to Edwin, the first order of business is to understand what has happened to the CSA.
The union has been wracked by deep divisions.
She said an update on the union’s finances, grievances and collective agreements will be scrutinized.
Edwin disclosed that she will wait until an assessment is fully done and make a determination on the way forward based on what the executive members want.
“I want to assure members that whatever is found or reviewed, you will determine the best way forward, “she said.
Edwin declared that she is eager to work and will allow nothing to deter her.
