P.S.U. Goes after Minister of Health and FinSec

This afternoon, just as most people were preparing for the long weekend, the Public Service Union of Belize issued a release blasting the “posturing and hypocrisy of the government” only days before the Joint Unions are set to resume negotiations with G.O.B.   The union calls out the Minister of Health and Wellness for flagrant political interference and accuses his advisors on the transition team of “political victimization, bullying and intimidation of career public officers.”  The P.S.U. says it has copies of several termination letters signed by the C.E.O. in the ministry dismissing public officers without any valid or justified reasons.  They criticize Prime Minister John Briceño for his “inability to reign in the Minister of Health and Wellness and his political lackeys.” The release also says the Ministry of Finance is seeking to muzzle public officers as it seeks to enforce Regulation Number forty-seven (one) of the Belize Constitution which prohibits public servants from making public any documents, papers or the information which may come to knowledge in the capacity as a public officer.  In conclusion, P.S.U. expressed its disappointment in the Ministry of Public Service, Constitutional Reform and Political Reform, for “allowing itself to be used as a pawn in executing unfair and punitive transfers.” The Joint Unions are scheduled to meet with the Government of Belize on Easter Monday.
