By Benjamin Flowers: The Government of Belize (GOB) said that teachers and public officers have up until Friday, May 14, to take strike action without having their salaries cut, but Public Service Union (PSU) President, Gerald Henry, says that it is not for union presidents to decide if the strike will continue beyond that point.

Speaking at the close of negotiations with GOB earlier this evening, Henry said that presidents must now engage their respective memberships on the Government’s latest proposal and get the directive from them as to whether or not they accept and if the strike will continue.

“It depends on what membership will tell us tonight and hopefully sometime maybe tomorrow or so we can talk to the government side and let them know what is the position of the union,” Henry said.

He noted that no official date has been set for the next meeting with GOB.

Prime Minister John Briceno told the country via recorded message yesterday that the salary cut the unions are fighting against is “inevitable” because the government simply does not have the money to keep paying them. See full story here
