The Public Service Association (PSA) has started its second week of protests over proposed restructuring within the Judiciary.
PSA President Watson Duke on Monday joined almost two dozen Judiciary workers who stayed away from work and chose to protest on the steps of the Hall of Justice in Port-of-Spain.
Armed with a portable loudspeaker and dressed in black robes, reminiscent of those worn by members of the clergy, Duke led the group in a series of prayer sessions which took place every hour until 2 pm.
Judges and magistrates have been invited to join with their judicial support staff to protest impending restructuring within the Judiciary.
Opposition Senator Gerald Ramdeen made the call during an impromptu speech to scores of Judiciary workers who gathered on the steps of the Hall of Justice, Port-of-Spain, to continue their protest around midday yesterday.
Monday will be a "Holiday for Justice" for workers of the Judiciary if Public Service Association President Watson Duke has his way.
Armed with a bullhorn, the PSA president addressed judiciary workers from around the country who gathered at the Hall of Justice in Port-of-Spain on Tuesday.
Many of the workers are concerned they may be out of the job by September 1, when the court adopts the new court system as guided by The Criminal Division and District Criminal and Traffic Courts Bill, 2018.
