Public Service Union hails signing of outstanding Collective Bargaining Agreement after 15 years

Posted: Sunday, June 16, 2024. 7:35 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: It took 15 years and multiple administrations, but the Joint Unions Negotiating Team (JUNT) representing Belize’s most powerful trade unions and public servants have signed off on a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

A press statement from the Public Service Union (PSU), a member of the JUNT along with the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU) and Association of Public Service Senior Managers (APSSM), noted that negotiations began in December of 2008, with partial agreements reached over the years.

The Union thanked members and past and present leaders for staying the course and noted that with this CBA soon expiring, negotiations will resume with Government on a new Agreement.

The PSU asks members to stand by for active communication and consultation in preparation of the new proposals for the forthcoming CBA.

The Public Service, not including teachers, is reputed to number between 12 and 15 thousand.
