The SOUT made a surprise visit at a CCL conference held at the Bay Gardens Resorts on Tuesday, July 7 and handed a letter addressed to CCL General Secretary Senator Chester Humphrey, inviting him to meditate a sit-down with the CSA’s executive.
A representative accepted the letter on Humphrey’s behalf.
The SOUT has been calling for the removal of the entire executive of the CSA and had previously created a petition to have Isaac removed from office as well.
The group first attacked Mary Isaac, a three-time president of the union, calling for her removal after she accepted the offer to become a senator.
SOUT had written Isaac over claims that she labeled them as Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) operatives, something they never admitted or denied.
They also claimed that the National Executive Council (NEC) is attempting to reconstitute the General Council of the Union, which was duly constituted.
Isaac, who recently resigned her post as president of the CSA, will be leaving the union shortly to play a more active role in politics.
The three-time president of the CSA has repeatedly said that SOUT is just another group that wants to create mischief and does not have the union’s interest at heart.
Instead, Isaac claims that the team was hopeful that they would have succeeded at the last CSA election, but since they were defeated, they have been creating more problems.
SOUT on the other hand has accused Isaac of trying to manipulate the system and work against the constitution of the CSA, and at the same time trying to politicize the union.
