Public servants’ jobs safe for now, says Faber

By Aaron Humes: While his political commitments almost ensure he cannot meet with those demanding meetings from him, including the Public Service Union (PSU), leader of the United Democratic Party Patrick Faber took time to assure them that their concern about retrenchment, while serious, is not on his radar at this time.

The Union has threatened to not allow its workers to manage Election Day and will further air their concerns about the prospect of retrenchment after elections – especially because the government is currently borrowing to pay wages – which is unsustainable.

Faber told reporters that on the matter of non-renewal of contracts, it was agreed to by Government as part of its cost-cutting measures and it has stood by this, even not renewing contracts for some school wardens and lower level but “important” positions in the service. The Union may also be referring to contracts for infrastructure projects and others.

If Faber’s UDP gets a majority, he promises that the Government will continue, until the economy gets back on its feet, to ensure full salaries come to public servants, teachers, police and security forces and others. And, if it ever gets to that point, he promises to sit down with all involved to chart the way forward.
