Public Officers Given Explanation on Salary Deferral But No Decisions Taken

Eldred Neal

On the matter of the salary adjustment, which the P.S.U. has voted to defer, and Proposal twenty-two relating to pensions for non-teaching staff, Neal explained that time was spent clarifying what happened to both P.S.U. and non-P.S.U. member public officers. He also denied that the Union was making decisions without consultation.


Eldred Neal, President, Public Service Union

“No, we’ve not ventured in that area today. We spent the time today looking at the clarity around how we came to that position because whilst our decision came from membership through branch settings, through this forum, we are not only targeting branch members now. Remember the union encapsules the entire public service. What we’ve done, we’ve now opened up these sessions, not just to branch members, but to all public officers across the country so that we can hear their concerns and their views. Because of course, the consultations that we did were done by branch members and I’ve heard and the media has ran with it, a lot about decisions being made by myself without consultation. That has never been done and that is the clarity that I’m bringing across to those who are outside the immediate union family, who are also public officers, who will also be affected.”
