Back pay delayed until end of August


 Share This On:

The Ministry of Public Service has promised that back pay owed to daily paid and non-established workers will be issued by the end of August.

The workers are now expected to settle back on the job after threatening industrial action last Wednesday. They had been told by letter that the monies would have been paid by July 31. However, no payments reflected on their salaries.

The workers, represented by the National Workers Union, descended on the union’s office demanding answers. Union officials puzzled, accompanied the workers to the ministry.

They were told that a computer glitch had prevented them from receiving the payments. The ministry officials assured that the monies would be paid by this month.
