ACM Concerned About Grenada Dismissal
March 29, 2012 – The Association of Caribbean MediaWorkers (ACM) acknowledges receipt of correspondence from its affiliate, the Media Workers Association of Grenada (MWAG) on the issues leading to the termination of the services of the Editor of the Grenada Advocate, Rawle Titus.
The ACM is treating this incident as a matter of considerable concern and we reiterate our high regard for and recognition of MWAG as the representative body for journalists in Grenada.
The ACM is very concerned about this development, more so as it concerns Mr. Titus, the President of MWAG. We have reviewed the issue by noting the public pronouncements of government representatives, submissions by MWAG to the ACM and other supporting documents including the article that led to the dismissal of Mr. Titus.
On the question of Mr. Titus’ relationship with the newspaper, the ACM acknowledges that we have no standing as a representative labour organisation. We however believe there are options open to Mr. Titus we would encourage him to pursue based on inviolable labour principles and standards and applicable legislation.
