This May Day is a May Day of struggle against the COVID-19 pandemic and its repercussions which have destroyed the livelihoods of millions of workers throughout the world; in the forced lockdown of countries and their economies. It is a struggle for the thousands of displaced workers here in Saint Lucia, the majority in the tourism sector, many of them young persons, who now have to find the means to sustain themselves in the uncertain months ahead.
… As I wish all our workers well on this extraordinary May Day, I urge you to follow all the health protocols against COVID-19 so that you can remain safe.
Happy May Day to all the workers of Saint Lucia.
Philip J Pierre
Political leader, Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP)
