Cabinet Brief: Government to respond to concerns of unions on budget

Posted: Thursday, February 18, 2021. 9:04 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister John Briceño, met in regular session on Tuesday, February 16, 2021. 

Francis Fonseca, Minister of Education, Culture, Science and Technology, reported back to Cabinet on his consultations with the trade unions between February 10 to 12, 2021.

Fonseca, Deputy Prime Minister Cordel Hyde and Henry Charles Usher, Minister for the Public Service, sat with individual unions, including the Public Service Union (PSU) and Belize National Teacher’s Union (BNTU), and with the wider National Trade Union Congress of Belize (NTUCB) in what both sides agree was a fruitful discussion.

Cabinet says it discussed thoroughly the recommendations and requests for information made by the unions and agreed to urgently provide a comprehensive response and to have follow-up discussions. 

Prime Minister John Briceño has said he hopes to avoid raising taxes for revenue from an already fragile economy, but there is official skepticism that cost-saving measures alone will reduce the half-a-billion-dollar gap in revenues over expenditure.
