The Executive Council of the Barbados Workers’ Union (B.W.U.) congratulates the B.W.U. General Secretary Senator Toni Moore and former General Secretary, Sir Roy Trotman who were among the seventy alumni of the University of the West Indies who were honoured in a ceremony, held at the UWI Cave Hill Campus on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. The observance formed part of the UWI’s 70th anniversary.

Sir Roy was among the five honourees of the UWI who attended that university in the 1960s and Senator Moore was among the eight alumni who attended the UWI in the decade of the 1990s. The Governor General, Her Excellency Dame Sandra Mason, and former Prime Ministers of Barbados Owen Arthur and Freundel Stuart, along with the former Bishop of Barbados Dr. John Holder and Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson were among the prominent Barbadian leaders who were honoured.

The University of the West Indies was established in 1948. Its first Registrar was The Rt. Excellent Sir Hugh Worrell Springer, who was the first General Secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union (1941-1947) and went to become acting Governor of Barbados and Governor of Barbados.
