The president of the Private Sector Organization of Jamaica Christopher Zacca has pledged that the group will work with public sector employees and their unions to ease the burden which will come with the curreny public sector wage freeze.

Yesterday, the Government and the trade unions which represent civil servants signed an agreement for a wage freeze until 2016.
Zacca says the private sector shares the view that the country should not find itself in this position again.
He also says the private sector will play its part in building a platform for economic growth.
Zacca notes that it would not have been an easy decision for civil servants and their unions to forego a wage increase.
The signing of a wage freeze is a necessary precondition for a deal with the International Monetary Fund, whose board is due to consider a programme for Jamaica this month.
As a condition for reaching a deal with the IMF, the government has to bring down the country’s wage bill.
