Dominica: DPSU Gives Government Deadline For Salary Negotiations

(Dominica News): The general membership of the Dominica Public Service Union (DPSU) has flatly rejected government’s offer of 1% salary increase and passed a resolution giving the government until December 14 to conclude wage and salary negotiations with them.

“Members have rejected government offer and they have moved a resolution mandating the executive to guide them in taking any action that is necessary to demonstrate their rejection of the offer and their dissatisfaction of the offer,” Thomas Letang, General Secretary of the DPSU, said.

He also said government was given until December 14 to wrap up the negotiations with the union. “The resolution that was tabled has given us up to the 14 of December by which time negotiations should be concluded amicably,” he pointed out.

Letang had earlier told DPSU members that the meeting was “the most important general membership meeting ever” which he said, would decide the way forward. “This will decide if we as public officers are serious and willing to stand up, won’t be taken for a ride and we are not party before pockets (PBP),” Letang stated.

The DPSU boss called on the public officers to stand up for what they believe. “We have to demonstrate to government that we are not only public officers but are citizens of this country….the country can afford more than 1% salary and you have to be prepared to stand up and fight for that,” he told them.
