The National Workers Union (NWU) was registered as a trade union on October 14th 2004. To honour its tenth anniversary a function will be held at the National Library (NALIS), Abercromby Street, Port of Spain, on Saturday 18th October 2014, beginning at 7:00 pm.


The function will include a presentation on the origin and history of the National Workers Union by General Secretary, Dave Smith; a feature address by Deputy President of the National Workers Union, Cecil Paul, which will examine the state of the trade union movement and point the direction forward for the strengthening of the movement.


The tenth anniversary function will also involve presentation of awards to three trade union activists who have dedicated their lives to the advancement of the interests of the working class and the launching of a booklet dealing with Canboulay, class struggle, and the steelband written by NWU Education and Research Officer Gerry Kangalee.
