no-photoDuring this morning’s press conference, another long awaited announcement was made by the Prime Minister. This surrounds the salary increase for teachers and public officers which have been tabled to the government and to which negotiations have been ongoing. And perhaps it was more of a reassurance as the Prime Minister stated that high wages for both is a given but after this fiscal year is concluded.

Dean Barrow- Prime Minister 


“What we had said to the union’s negotiating team is for sure you will get your raise next year because there is no doubt that the formula which we have proposed that is that they get 50%, 50 cents on every dollars of increase recurrent revenue will yield them a significant salary increase. Nobody can predict with certainty the extent of the increases.”

The new salary should be in effect sometime midyear in 2014. We will have more on the press conference in tomorrow’s newscast.
