CIVIL Service Association (CSA) members opposed to Mary Isaac say that they feel vindicated because information reaching them indicate that she has tendered her resignation, to take effect Monday.
The members who had formed themselves into a group called ‘Save Our Union (CSA) Team’ said that a petition, claimed to have been signed by over 500 members calling for the removal of the entire Executive Council, and which was handed to Isaac as acting general secretary earlier this month, was justified.
They claimed that information reaching them indicate that Isaac and the treasurer had tendered their resignations.
Isaac earlier this week had indicated her desire to resign from the trade union, however she did not proffer a reason for her decision. Reports are that she will be focusing her attention on the Castries South Constituency as the prospective candidate for the United Workers Party come the next general elections.
Her departure will end five years of occupancy at the trade union in which she was twice elected as its president.
But though rejoicing at her departure, the Save Our Union Team said that the resignations have placed the CSA in a position where it is now facing a constitutional crisis.
“To date, four of its elected executive members have resigned. This situation leaves the organization with an Executive Committee which is toothless, without a quorum, therefore unable to take any meaningful decision! Another resignation simply makes a bad situation worse!” the group declared in a statement.
The group is calling on the remaining elected officers to resign immediately saying it is the noble thing to do.
“If they care for this noble workers’ organization, they must do the right thing and accede to the demands of the membership. Stop the bleeding and the destruction,” members said.
