This feature is dedicated to practicing trade unionists whether shop stewards, branch officers or industrial relations practitioners at the Ministry of Labour, Industrial court, at the negotiation table etc.

Questions about industrial relations issues should be sent to kangaz@workersunion.org.tt and we will attempt to address these questions as expeditiously and as comprehensively as possible.

To put the relationship between industrial relations and the class struggle in its proper context, we publish an excerpt from an address given by National Workers Union (NWU) Education and Research Officer, Gerry Kangalee to a seminar organized by the Labour Advisory Bureau on Collective Bargaining held on November 29-30 2013 at the headquarters of the Transport and Industrial Workers Union in Laventille.
