Most Grenada gov't ministers to forgo pay hike, gratuity

Friday, November 15, 2013

Over 90 percent of Grenada government ministers have agreed to forego the automatic six percent increases to their salaries, which were consistent with the increases to public servants.

According to the media reports, the members of the new administration are sensitive to this being a special period of adjustment and sacrifice. Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell has said that he will not let anything interfere with his singular goal of implementing a successful debt-restructuring program.

To demonstrate how important this message is, ministers have also decided to forego gratuity payments, and in the same vein, all parliamentarians have been called upon current and former, who qualify to indicate that they will forego any payment as well.

By ministers not taking salary increases, government is saving approximately $65,000 per year.

Workers at the Grenada Board of Tourism (GBT), continued their protest action for the third day, following a break down in negotiations as the government prepares to establish a new marketing and promotional institution.

The workers are protesting against plans related to the soon to be established Grenada Tourism Authority.

It was announced that with the changes, several positions will be made redundant but it is expected that current employees will receive first preference through an application process with the Grenada Tourism Authority.

On Thursday morning Chester Humphrey, President General of the Technical and Allied Workers Union (TAWU) which represents the workers said issues will be discussed during a meeting at Ministry of Labour.

The Grenada Board of Tourism was established by legislation and the new body will also be established by legislation which is yet to be presented to the Parliament for approval by Dr Keith Mitchell administration. It was initially presented during the former Tillman Thomas administration but withdrawn.
