Group seeks parity for Caymanians in labour laws, jobs for unemployed

The group Caymanians Against Economic Injustice told Cayman 27 it’s hoping to identify and categorise unemployed Caymanians, while giving them a voice on labour issues.

Thursday morning on the glass house lawn, dozens turned out to participate in the group’s jobs drive.

The plan is to determine job seekers’ skill sets and match them with potential employers in those fields. The group said it aims to be a voice for the everyday Caymanian, and wants to be included as a stakeholder when new labour laws and programmes like are crafted.

“With every significant piece of labour legislation that has gone on in Cayman recently, what has been absent from the table has been workers representation,” said Lorna Bush of Caymanians Against Economic Injustice. “The Chamber of Commerce wants to write our labour laws. They’re protecting their people: who’s looking out for the workers?”

Caymanians Against Economic Injustice will be back at the glass house from 9 to 1pm on Friday (12 February) as well.
