While the members are within their rights in calling for the resignation of Ms. Mary Isaac (CSA’s President) are doing so in accordance with Provision 6.7 captioned National General Meetings/Annual General Meetings on page 8 of the Association’s Constitution, they should be properly guided.
Isn’t it very interesting that these members cannot quote any provision in the said Constitution to prove and justify that the CSA’s president has violated any provision of the Association’s Constitution. It would be equally interesting to ascertain who are the proponents of this petition calling for the removal of our dynamic and courageous president.
I crave your indulgence in allowing me to quote Section 3 of the CSA’s Constitution captioned Membership on page 2 of that very same document:
(a) “Membership in THE UNION shall consist of all persons legally and gainfully employed in Saint Lucia who wish to become members of THE UNION, or retain membership notwithstanding retirement, and a change in their place or field of employment.”
(b) THE UNION shall consist of full and honorary members: –
(i) Full members
“Full members shall be all persons legally and gainfully employed in Saint Lucia who wish to become members of THE UNION or retain membership therein, regardless of age, religion, colour, creed, gender or nationality, political persuasion or affiliation. Membership will be open to all employees 16 years and over. However, only full members 18 years and over shall be eligible to serve on the Executive Council.”
It’s now up to the interpretation of our members.
