P.U.P. Issues Message of Solidarity with the Public Service Union

The People’s United Party has also issued a message of solidarity with the Public Service Union. It says that the letter of ultimatum has no place in a democratic society where workers are seen as important and equal partners in development and governance. The P.U.P. calls on the government to come clean with the true numbers and identity of their politically appointed contract officers and the total dollar value of those contracts.  It condemns the not so veiled threat from the Prime Minister to circumvent the National Assembly and seek to have the Governor General amend the Public Service Regulations under the State of Emergency to, “give the Minister (PM) the power to alter salaries, emoluments, and increments.”   It says it is an unnecessary and outrageous abuse of authority which must be resoundingly rejected by all our social partners and indeed by all right-thinking Belizeans.
