THIRTY hotel and tourism sector workers who are members of the National Workers Union (NWU) will receive $500 bursaries from the NWU for their children.
The amount will be handed out to members of the Union’s tourism-related branches, who are currently financial members and who have children attending seconding school for the first time in this September.
The payout comes from the NWU’s Education Fund to which hotel workers have made a significant contribution. The beneficiaries for this year are from Anse Chastanet Hotel, Caribbean Dispatch Services Ltd. (CDSL), Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa, LIAT (1974) Ltd., Rex Resorts, St. James’s Club Morgan Bay, Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort and Ti Kaye Resort & Spa.
The NWU will maintain its thrust at assisting in the education of its members. It will continue “to protect and defend the economic, social, educational, cultural and political interest of workers”, as enshrined in Aims and Objective # 2 of its Constitution.
The Bursary Awards Ceremony was held yesterday at the Finance Administrative Centre, Pointe Seraphine in Castries.
