PRESIDENT general of the Oilfields Workers' Trade Union (OWTU) Ancel Roget is no stranger to controversy.
This includes his recent call to boycott 120 businesses belonging to the Syrian/Lebanese community, during the Labour Day August 4 rally in Port of Spain.
Roget called for a boycott of a number of businesses owned by the Syrian-Lebanese community—the “one per cent”.
He was referring to comments made by businessman Mario Sabga-Aboud on a recent episode of CNN's Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, which featured Trinidad and Tobago.
Sabga-Aboud hosted Bourdain at his home for dinner during the show.
