The Bermuda Industrial Union [BIU] President Chris Furbert is holding a press conference this afternoon [Aug 23], and we will have additional coverage later on and in the meantime the live video is below.

    Do they realise how much we hate their guts?

    Dear Mr. Furbert, the question of how a copy of your letter to the Premier is not “the $64,000 question”. The good ship government is the only ship that leaks from the top. That fact is older than you are.

    The real question from my perspective is why BUI workers claim to have a veto over the way Government drafts legislation. Are we in a democracy or a union-ocracy, where only union members have a real vote?

    The premier been long lost touch.
    If your not a friend or family.
    A doctor or imaginary entertainer who other then these listed have benefited from anything this current govt has done for the island as a whole..
    They keep talking about health insurance if keeping it going up was there plan, i apologize they succeeded there.
    If the island was stoked like egos it would look pristine. Bermuda has never looked so bad, roads, stolen or wrecked bikes everywhere potholes big holes gingus.

    This has got to be a joke. It is no way we need to see the Country shut down for this non issue. The Union asked for all to pay dues, these are the rules that come with that request. Ever dues paying person, member or not, gets a vote. Its not rocket science.
