The Employers Consultative Association of Trinidad and Tobago (ECA) is calling for good sense to prevail as we collectively strive to overcome the current turbulent economic challenges facing our nation. In this regard, the ECA believes that the recent call by Mr. Ancel Roget, President of the Joint Trade Union Movement, for consumers to boycott businesses owned by the so called “elitist one percent” cannot be seen as a reasonable, responsible, or rational course of action.

The Employers Consultative Association of Trinidad and Tobago (ECA) continues to follow recent heightened activity by the Trade Union movement, following Labour Day observances last month which has led to several joint Union exercises across the country. According to reports, the culmination of this exercise is expected to be a mass demonstration on August 4th in resistance to several social and labour related issues, including retrenchment of workers and the perceived inequity in sharing the burden of adjustment required to survive the current socio-economic challenges facing Trinidad and Tobago (T&T).

The Employers Consultative Association of Trinidad and Tobago (ECA) announces the appointment of a new Chairman and five (5) new Directors to its Board of Directors for the period 2017 to 2020.
