Nassau, Bahamas — It was just two months and two days since Nicole Martin and her A Team were elected executives of The Bahamas Hotel Workers and Allied Workers Union, but today those elections were declared “null and void” by Justice Jon Isaacs.
Martin and her team won the union elections by a landslide with a message of saving the Union, which had hundred of its members laid off in the Hotel sector. Isaacs ruling came around noon today where he ordered that a new election be held and its former administrators be reinstated for a 30 day period.
In May, Wilson was granted an order staying the elections, but the poll was later allowed to go forth; however, Supreme Court Justice Jon Isaacs ordered that a judicial review be conducted to determine whether the setting of the nomination and election dates by the then president and secretary general, Roy Colebrook and Leo Douglas – contravened the union’s constitution.
Today, Kirk Wilson held a press conference following his victory in the courts and congratulated his team who broght the action.
