The President of the Public Service Union, Eldrid Neal has been meeting with public officers both in Orange Walk and Belize City with the aim of addressing issues that the officers are very much concerned with at this point in time. The meetings have revealed that there are a number of challenges that public officers are facing. One of them is that only a portion of public officers are given the opportunity to excel and obtain privileges within their respective jobs. This morning Neal was on the Despierta Belice morning show and spoke on the issue.

In an effort to establish a balance in the distribution of wealth in our country, the government has agreed to implement a classification exercise that will serve to benefit the public officers, says Neal.

The government in any way suggesting individuals that are to go home, we are going to standardize the post, look at the work that you do, justify it, standardize the salary across the country if we are doing the same kind of job.”


And while many are alleging that the government is responsible for contributing to an imbalance in the labor force, the PSU in partnership with GOB have appointed an individual to ensure that the implementation of the classification exercise comes into effect as planned.
