Public Services Association (PSA) president Watson Duke is considering contesting next year's general election.
Duke said so while addressing media personnel during a symbolic bonfire at the rooftop of the association's headquarters at Abercromby Street, Port-of-Spain, on Tuesday.
With Black Stalin's 1987 hit "Bun Dem" playing in the background, Duke and PSA members marched around a fire in a recycled oil drum that was fed with old newspapers and red and yellow T-shirts, which represented the colours of the People's National Movement (PNM) and United National Congress (UNC).
Stating that both political parties had repeatedly failed working class citizens, Duke said over the next three months the PSA would come up with a strategy to break the parties' monopoly in Parliament.
"The working class forms the bedrock of T&T and we gave the PNM and UNC our support and they bussed our throats.
We are coming up with a formula which would find us in Parliament," Duke said.
While he did not divulge more details of his plan, Duke did say that it did not include forming a new political party.
Although Duke was highly critical of the Government's economic measures, including the restructuring of State-owned oil company Petrotrin, Duke said the UNC was partly to blame because of its poor strategies in Parliament.
"We want governance and not back-chats in Parliament. We want intelligent leadership," he said.
Duke, who is also the leader of the Progressive Democratic Party (PDP), has also been the minority leader of the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) since he secured the Roxborough/Delaford seat in 2017.
