Employers and workers organizations as well as other labour-related entities across the region are to become more aware of the free movement provisions of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) as a series of free movement sensitization sessions by the CARICOM Secretariat which began earlier this year, kicks off today Monday October 24 and will continue tomorrow Tuesday, October 25 at the Fort Young Hotel.
Resource persons from the Secretariat will conduct the sensitization exercise which will cover the following areas: the facilitation of hassle-free travel, movement of skilled CARICOM nationals, the right of establishment and the provision of services. Participants will also be apprised of the CARICOM Complaints Procedure which nationals can use if they feel that they have been denied access to any of the regimes as they travel to other member states.
Additionally, they will be informed of their responsibilities as citizens who seek to move under any of the free movement regimes of the CSME. The session also provides an opportunity for labour stakeholders to have any issues clarified regarding free movement or to make recommendations.
