Trade Union mourns loss of former President General

The leadership and members of the All Trinidad General Workers Trade Union are expressing sadness at the death of its former President General, Boysie Moore Jones.

Mr Jones died a few days ago and was laid to rest on Monday afternoon.

In a statement, the trade union celebrated his commitment and dedication and said he would be remembered as a tireless individual who was always ready to articulate and defend the interests and rights of the working class.

Mr Moore was described as an astute leader who earned the respect and admiration of his local, regional and international union colleagues.

He worked his way up through the ranks and served as Acting President General following the UNC's victory at the polls in 1995, when then President General, Basdeo Panday, became Prime Minister.

Mr Jones was elected President General upon the expiration of Mr Panday's term and held the position until his retirement at age 65.
