The St. Lucia Civil Service Association (CSA) has praised Dr. Kenny Anthony for his leadership and contribution towards the establishment of two new funds for the union, the CSA’s medical plan and education fund.
These two funds form part of the recent collective agreement between the government and the CSA. It was decided then that $100,000 would be provided to capitalise the funds.
The objective of the education plan is to help improve public servants’ performance by enhancing their skills, improving attitudes, motivation and job satisfaction necessary to contribute to a productive public sector.
The objective of the medical plan is to provide support to members to address some of their health problems.
The CSA says it will endeavour to ensure, that the prime minister’s concerns are met, which is that the greatest proportion of these funds be directed at bringing relief, especially to members from grades one to seven who earn less than $1000.
