AARON HUMES Reporting: $22 million over three years. Prime Minister Dean Barrow confirmed this evening that this is the total figure for how much more teachers and public officers will be paid, guaranteed, by the Government of Belize.

It represents an adjustment, but really an increase of 5%, the minimum they asked for, and they will also get the standard 2.5% annual increment.

Despite issues with poor economic growth, the Prime Minister stated that this increase is locked in permanently.

It also means that the Belize National Teachers’ Union, Public Service Union and Association of Public Service Senior Managers have added responsibilities, as adverse effects to the Government such as a reversal of the takeover of the Companies and Ships Registries and lower profits for Belize Telemedia Limited may easily reverse the state of affairs.

For this reason, he says, future discussions will center on merit-based performance especially by the teachers, whom he says took to the streets without thinking of the greater good.
