Labour and Employer met today at the Special Council, were Employer formally presented a draft collective agreement on improvement of salaries.
The draft agreement is similar to Employer’s position as articulated during the facilitation process. POPCRU further demanded that employer must consider incorporating non-pensionable gratuity into the baseline to effect real increase into public servants salaries.
The parties agreed to meet on Friday to allow those unions who were not part of the facilitation and those who have not concluded thier mandate to conclude and seek mandate.
POPCRU is still adamant that failure by the Employer to pronounce on Friday on the issue of baseline then we will reject the offer as earlier communicated to our members.
We will further communicate the outcome of Friday’s meeting as soon as we conclude.
