By Aaron Humes: Is it consultation or negotiation, asks the three joint trade unions: Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU), Public Service Union (PSU), and Association of Public Service Senior Managers (APSSM)?
They claim Government has backpedaled on key issues, especially an agreement to restore public officers and teachers to their correct payscales at the end of the salary cut/increment freeze, and that is a key reason the strike continues.
Senator Elena Smith, President of BNTU, explained that the offers on the table for compensation had been changed without giving the unions a chance to consult their membership.
The Government has pulled back, the Unions charge, on key issues to them: pensioners are at risk from the cuts; forbearance for loans is limited to residential mortgages and not personal loans; and revision and conclusion of a Collective Bargaining Agreement with meetings to start on May 15.
