By Zoila Palma: Prime Minister Dean Barrow announced through a press release today that he has received a formal response from the Joint Unions’ negotiating team to Government’s request for the consideration of a deferral of the third tranche of the Salary adjustment until April 2017.

The Belize National Teachers Union voted against the deferral. The Association of Public Service Senior Managers (APSSM) voted “yes” to deferral as well as the Public Service Union (PSU).
In view of the impasse among the Unions, the Prime Minister has asked for an urgent meeting to see if their differing positions can be reconciled and some common ground found.

The public will be informed of updates on this matter the press release adds.
