Strength of women in unions

By Abdulmajeed K. Nunez

Everyone looks at the big elections
But its small elections that builds traction
One, one okra full basket
Be on your mark get set
Teechaz please no mek
The UDP wi presidency teck

Someone made a pronunciation
Regarding the BNTU elections
Political interference they will withdraw their participation
For your information
It started with the reward of the one million
Anything that threatens GOB corruption
You can bet your cook
They will try infiltration

BNTU is the most powerful union
Government will do everything to have the upper hand
If they could buy senator in general elections
If 1,200 plus could get nationality before elections
If they could interfere in the Youth Council election
To ensure victory for their senator’s son
Don’t hold your breath, they interfere in this one

I call on ALL in the teaching profession
We have to stand strong
Do not allow GOB to divide and conquer
Let’s band together and show TEECHAZ POWER!
Show the deputy prime minister
That UNION BUSTING nog gwen work with Elena
Let’s empower our senator
Let’s make Farber taste some woman Fum Fum
Mek he know dah families he di deal with and no pudun

Let’s send and resounding message to Belmopan
That they cannot buy the TEECHAZ UNION
Let’s send a message to Belmopan
We won’t fall for the tactics used on the cane farmers
We won’t fall for the tactics used on the citrus growers
We won’t fall for the tactics used on the banana growers
We won’t fall for the tactics used on the Public Service Union
We won’t fall for the tactics used one the APSSM by the bald head man
We won’t fall like the BNTU and their infiltration
We will vote Elena Smith as president of the Belize National TEECHAZ UNION
Let them put that in their pipe and smoke it in Belmopan
Never underestimate the power of a woman
This minister need a lesson in respecting woman
