General Secretary of the Public Service Union Thomas Letang is calling for the setting up of a special forum to discuss matters affecting Haiti.
Haiti has been plagued by decades of coups, hurricanes, embargos, economic collapse and a recent earthquake that left hundreds of thousands dead.
Letang said CARICOM should show greater commitment to the people of Haiti.
He said Haiti played a significant role in the independence process and should not be abandoned by CARICOM.
“There is a lesson in all of this for us. They are going through economic and political problems and we shouldn’t abandon them. I believe the Caribbean needs to come together and have a special forum where they can decide on how to help Haiti,” he said.
He said Haiti needs to know that Dominica is behind them.
