Welcome to the Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union

Welcome to the Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union! Born out of the historic General Strike and anti-colonial revolt of June 1937 in Trinidad, the OWTU has a proud tradition of being the most important trade union in the Anglophone Caribbean.


Continuing the tradition of the mass movement towards achieving a society with the power to determine its destiny on the basis of equity, social justice and a decent standard of living for all.

Conscious of our working class ideology, we advance our vanguard role in the movement by:

  • Building solidarity;
  • Improving/defending the quality of life of our members and working people as a whole;
  • Giving voice the voiceless through organizing, educating and political action
