KINGSTON, Jamaica, Mar. 10, CMC - The Jamaica Teachers Association(JTA) has become the latest public sector union to sign a wage restraint agreement with the Portia Simpson Miller led administration.
Previously, the teachers’ union had stated that it could not make such an agreement and as a result did not join other public sector unions, which signed the agreement with the government last week.
JTA President, Clayton Hall, said the teachers decided to relent given the circumstances facing the country. He noted that the wage restraint deal for the 2012-2015 came in the form of a package with other incentives.
He warned that although the JTA has joined the other groups in signing, it will remain strident in defending its members, adding that this will also be the last agreement to a wage restraint with the Government.
