    Trying to justify that full time salary at any cost. Can’t wait to hear about how demonic the OBA are because they want to reduce the cost of the civil service and how government must be immediately overthrown so that the PLP can take over…and NOT reduce the civil service? Really

    • TRUTH says:

      Stand Strong Bro Jason, this court battle is a fight against all Unions to Silence the People. We must stand together.,,.,,your doing great, keep it up…

      • Build a Better Bermuda says:

        Actually, it is a fight against those who think they can throw out accusations without reproductions. It would be another matter if he had produced an actual evidence, however, their own ‘revealing emails’ actually support the government. It is only if you limit yourself to the few selected snippets that were deliberately released without the full email context, that you can create an illusion of impropriety. The fact remains that Minister Richards has done more to preserve CS jobs than their own unions.

      • hmmm says:

        Nothing of the sort. That is what union leaders would like you to think. the more the bogeyman mentality is in your head, the better off they are going to be.

    • Thank God for African Bermudians who sacrificed and fought for years for this Holiday.
      Stand firm Jason your elders who paved the way before you, went through worse and are proud of you.

  2. BPSU Member says:

    Keep up the good work brother Jason, If the Government is funding legal actions; THE PEOPLE OF BERMUDA WOULD BE FUNDING YOUR FIGHT. Make no illusion this is personal.

    • Casual Observer says:

      So you think your ‘leader’ has the right to pay for air time and throw around baseless accusations and the accused should just take it lying down?

      I heard the TV station had to apologise for the broadcast, but because you are part of a Union you believe you are above such responsibilities and decency?

      I’m sure it is personal also for the individual your ‘leader’ slandered as well.

      • hmmm says:

        I wonder if he got paid for doing that broadcast too, and by whom.

    • inna says:

      Funding his fight and his fat paycheck that i am sure you would love to collect!!!!

  3. St Kool says:

    Oh boy, can’t wait to read the transcript of this speech. Bound to be a hate-filled gem!

  4. Patricia says:

    President and Treasurer of the BPSU. Doesn’t anyone see a conflict here.

    • Build a Better Bermuda says:

      My thoughts exactly… does this mean he is collecting 2 pay checks from the BPSU?

      • Yahoo says:

        I’d be more concerned about the lack of controls…

        • Build a Better Bermuda says:

          Not mine or taxpayer dollars, that is up to the BPSU membership. Ever think why the unions have been loose and light about submitting proper financial records to the authorities for auditing?

    • hmmm says:

      Where have we see this before hmmmmmmmmmm Leader of public body and the finance function. Now remind me how that worked out.

      • Not exactly says:

        Smooth as a machine full of well greased cogs!

      • I like this, folk AFRAID of strong minded Black Leaders who dont give a S!@# about the powers that be, whats sad is some Black folk are afraid too.
        Dont worry those fearful days are over, its all in your minds.
        Speak the TRUTH Bro, the young bloods need to hear it.

  5. Coffee says:

    Jason , tell them exactly what you think ! Tell them to get rid of Dunkeley , tell them we want Gordon -Pamplin for Premier !

  6. Former Member says:

    I took my dues out of the BPSU after the election of Jason Hayward. He clearly does not represent workers and aligns himself too politically to serve any real labour interests. I cringe to know he will be given another platform to rant about the Government.

    • You’re just a weak minority, Labor has and always be political, just like in United States,England and Canada,only difference is Whites in Bermuda are not vocal and active like their cousins overseas.

  7. High Road says:

    Nice Suit!

  8. Triangle Drifter says:

    This will be like a high school pep rally. Lots of rah rah, foot stomping, cheering & clapping but little substance except for the message that has come from an island to the north.

  9. Jus' Wonderin' says:

    President and Treasurer….if none of you lot see any wrong with that smfh!!! Been took my dues out…

  10. Jurist says:

    Let me guess, all we Bermudians are being taken advantaged of by them America’s Cup people!

  11. swing voter says:

    Hayward is not Furbert.

  12. Starting Point says:

    Furbert must secretly hate Hayward lol, a smart educated union leader who can speak English. Fold the BIU and move the workers over to the BPSU! The BIU continue to darken the image of the union movement in Bermuda through incompetence and complete lack of effort to build up the Bermuda workers through training and evaluation. Union talking heads will never admit it but the BIU workers would be 100 times better off over with us in the BPSU.

  13. hmmmmmm says:

    Actually I doubt furbert is worried at all.

    Seems to me he is giving young blood here enough rope to hang himself.

    And I promise you when he does the BTUC will sit back and smile.

    Because Chris knows people would rather discuss a matter with Chris vs battle with Jason
