Police meet with Gov't over wage negotiations
2013-03-08 08:52:37 | (0 Comments)
The Government is to meet with police groups today as it seeks to have wage negotiations wrapped up with all public sector workers by Monday.
Minister with responsibility for the public service, Horace Dalley, said the Government needs to move quickly to secure an agreement with workers, so it can finalise the International Monetary Fund deal.
However, the Police Officers’ Association (POA), the Jamaica Police Federation and the Jamaica Teachers’ Association(JTA) have said they only had one meeting so far with the government.
Head of the POA, Senior Superintendent of Police Glenford Hudson, says his group has not even received a draft copy of the government’s wage proposal.
He says it could take some time before the groups are able to get feedback on the proposal from their members.
The Jamaica Civil Service Association and the Jamaica Confederation of Trade Unions have already inked a deal with the Government on behalf of their members to forego wage increases for the next three years.
The JTA has called a Special General Council meeting for this morning to discuss the Government's proposal.
