Public Service Union complains they were not consulted on new Judicial and Legal Services Regulations

Posted: Sunday, February 20, 2022. 11:57 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: Public servants employed in the Ministry of the Attorney General and Legal Affairs are officially under new regulations by statutory instrument.

But the Public Service Union claims it was blindsided by the introduction of Statutory Instrument 29 of 2022, which creates the Judicial and Legal Services Regulations in place of the traditional Public Service Regulations.

President of the Public Service Union, Dean Flowers, told Channel 5 News he was only made aware of the change on Friday morning. According to Flowers, the amendment was made without consultation with the union or the public officers themselves.

“You cannot change the terms and conditions or the re-designation of people post without consulting with their duly and legally recognized representative in accordance with Chapter 304 of the Laws of Belize [Trade Unions and Employers’ Organizations (Registration, Recognition and Status) Act]. And if you want to throw Chapter 304 out the door, then at least respect the Public Service Regulation which mandates that you speak to us. You must speak with the representative when it deals with the terms and conditions of employment, salaries or allowance, grievances and classification of posts. But here we have another administration that is going arrogant in the same manner that we saw under the previous administration, doing as they see fit and throwing all the rules and regulations out the door,” Flowers contended.
