For 25 years, the FNT has not wavered from its commitment to workers in all sectors and at all levels, including health, education and agricultural development. The FNT is committed to delivering quality services to the population but at the same time recognises the need to continue the fight against poverty, unemployment and sickness. The following statement was issued by the FNT on 1st May:-

'These 25 years represent a commitment to work, a commitment to struggle, a commitment to the Revolution. We will continue to go forward as organised workers, continuing to build love, peace and solidarity in the face of many challenges which we may face. Long live the Revolution, long live Nicaraguan workers, long live the 1st of May'.
