Press Release:– The National Workers Union (NWU) is applauding the delegation of Public Servants and Government Officials who travelled to London and Paris in search of new markets for Saint Lucia bananas.
The announcement that France is now willing to do business with Saint Lucia by accepting our first consignment of bananas is very good news for our farmers, WINERA workers and indeed Saint Lucia.
We must not leave our banana farmers to handle this matter on their own. A financial subsidy must be seriously considered to enable these banana farmers to get back to their farms to produce top quality fruit.
We must now get rid of all the operational carbuncles that are determined to give the resurgence of the Banana Industry a rough journey.
The workers of WINERA stand in full solidarity with the banana farmers.
