Bahamas Public Services Union is a very unique Trade Union which looks after the interest of just under 5,ooo members of all categories of workers employed in the various government Ministries, Boards and Corporations throughout The Bahamas.
It is the second largest Trade Union in the country. Because it represents the interest of so many people in many wide range occupations, it requires a complex organization to carry out it's functions. We are not white or blue collar union, our membership encompasses workers from the very top to the public service professional ladder to men and women who keep our surroundings clean and keep the vital public services functioning. Are we not unique?
The Bahamas Public Services Union like most of the unions in The Bahamas would most likely not be here today were it not for the events of 1942, 1958 and 1988.
The Government of that era (1942-1958) refused to recognize the difference between progress and regress, their way of progress was contained and divisiveness among workers. Is history repeating itself?
