NWU and SLASPA conclude negotiations

The management of Saint Lucia Air & Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA) and officials from the National Workers Union (NWU) have satisfactorily concluded negotiations.

Monthly and fortnightly paid employees with SLASPA within the NWU Bargaining Unit will benefit from an eight percent general wage increase, back pay from March 31, 2012 and adjustments in a few wage scales.

The agreement which will run for a period of three years will have a spread of wage increase of 3.5 percent in Year 1, 2.5 percent in Year 2 and 2 percent in Year 3. The parties have also agreed to work towards a general reclassification structure within a period of two years.

SLASPA and the NWU will meet shortly to affix signatures to the new industrial agreement.
