President of the Civil Service Association (CSA) Mary Isaac is satisfied that day one of strike action by government workers had the desired impact.

While some offices were manned by retired employees, managers and temporary workers from NICE, a number of key sections were left empty.

Isaac said she hopes the small percentage of workers who may have turned out at the offices would join the CSA and the struggle for respect from the government.

A number of workers gathered at the CSA headquarters engaging in games and debates to pass the work day.

Isaac said the union will not be taking to the streets in demonstration, at least not yet, because it is not interested in disrupting the country. What it wants is for the government to understand that workers can not be taken for granted and must be given their just dues for their hard work.

The workers are expected to remain at home until otherwise ordered by the union.

  1. Is she serious???? Satisfied with holding the country hostage???? I would expect better from educated people. She should be negotiating or preparing for arbitration instead of encouraging her members to be UN-Civil.

  2. We cannot continue like this... deadlock!! the govt should be the bigger person here and bring an end to this mess. At the end of the day we are all responsible for our country's progress but the govt has the ultimate responsibility and must answer the questions from IMF and the rest of the world when our country is experiencing negative growth!

    • Which is exactly why the Government has indicated that it cannot afford to pay a 9.5% increase. The GNT has compromised from its initial 0%, to 4%...the Prime Minister has suggested arbitration. The problem here is with the CSA, who are hellbent on bring the country down. The leaders of the CSA are selfish, and only concerned with their own personal agendas, which they are craftily withholding from their membership. And the membership of the CSA is so gullible, that they cannot see beyond dollars and cents. It is really a sad day in our history.
