Police await official letter from finance ministry

The Ministry of Finance is expected to outline its wage proposal to the various police groups in writing today.
Minister with responsibility for the Public Service, Horace Dalley - File.
Yesterday, members of the Police Officers’ Association, the Police Federation and the Special Constabulary Force Association met with Minister with responsibility for the Public Service, Horace Dalley.
However, Chairman of the Police Officers’ Association, Senior superintendent Glenford Hudson, said instead of continuing ongoing talks, Dalley advised the groups that the government was considering the imposition of a wage freeze up to 2015.
Senior Superintendent Hudson said while the groups are cognizant of the economic situation affecting the country, the imposition of a wage freeze without other incentives is not acceptable.
The finance ministry is expected to outline in its letter today to the police groups its proposal for meeting the demands of the International Monetary Fund in relation to wages.
SSP Hudson says he is expecting Dalley’s letter to clearly outline the government's response to the non-wage aspects of the association's claim.
