Past President of the Bermuda Public Service Union ([BPSU), Armell Thomas will take up the position again as of March 2020.

BPSU General Secretary Ed Ball confirmed that Mr Thomas will be sworn in as the new President on March 14.

Lloyquita Symonds will serve as interim president until Mr Thomas formally takes up the post.

Mr Thomas ran unopposed for the post last week for a three-year term.

He replaces Progressive Labour Party MP Jason Hayward, who stepped down to run for the PLP in the Pembroke Central bye-election to fill the seat left vacant by the late Walton Brown Jr.

“The membership will expect that we continue to be assertive, not necessarily aggressive, but with forethought and to keep abreast with changes both locally and globally,” said Mr Ball.

Once in the post, a strategic plan “will be the focus of projects and/or direction that the union will go for the three years”, he added.

Mr Thomas left the post in 2011 after six years of service.
