Government proposes land credit for public officers affected by salary adjustment

Posted: Thursday, April 22, 2021. 8:54 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma: Cabinet met on April 20, 2021 and discussed proposals made to the unions by the Ministry of Public Service, Constitutional and Political reform.

Minister Henry Charles Usher informed that he wrote to the Joint Unions requesting their views on his preliminary proposals for the fixing of salaries of public officers in accordance with the Constitution.

According to a release from Government, the Unions responded to the Minister’s letter indicating their position against a salary cut as proposed in the Minister’s letter or otherwise.

Therefore, Minister Usher informed Cabinet that he would fix the salaries of public officers having regard to the deteriorated state of public finances and the views and suggestions raised by the Joint Unions.

“Complementing the decision of the Minister of the Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform, Cabinet decided that it would take such steps as necessary to grant a land credit in favour of the affected public officers equivalent to 50% of the salary adjustment, which credit may be exercisable on the acquisition of land from government,” the release stated.

In addition, Cabinet says that it remains committed to the points set out in its letter of 30th March 2021.
