By Benjamin Flowers: The Government of Belize (GOB) has officially finalized new reduced working hours for public officers, according to an internal memo released today from the Ministry of Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform.
The memo said that Cabinet has agreed and declared that the official hours for departments to conduct government business will be between 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday.
“As a part of the Government of Belize’s undertaking with the Unions on reducing the working hours for Public Officers, it has become necessary to standardize the scheduling of such reduced hours for the provision of service to the populace,” the Ministry said.
The Ministry also called on all public officers to embrace the challenges that the country is facing and remain committed to their jobs.
The official schedule change comes after the much-protested implementation of a 10 percent salary cut and three-year increment freeze for teachers and public officers, which took official effect this month.
