OWTU threatens to shut down country

The Joint Trade Union Movement is warning the government to brace for a "tsunami response" to its national day of resistance.

The union is threatening to shut down the country over retrenchment and the implementation of austerity measures.

As it continues to mobilize workers, the union went to south Trinidad where San Fernando city corporation workers joined the call for resistance.

Cameraman Ivan Toolsie was there and reporter Ria Rambally has this report.
