Ramotar hopes for meaningful negotiations on public servants pay hike
President Donald Ramotar says he hopes this year’s wage increase to public servants will be preceded by meaningful negotiations with the relevant stakeholders.
For more than a decade the government has been imposing the annual wage increase to public servants without resort to bargaining with the main workers’ union. Instead, the government has continued to make the decision unilaterally, offering 5% per annum. The latest such decision was taken last year.
