Prime Minister and Minister for Finance and Economic Affairs, Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony will address the nation on Sunday, January 6, 2013.

The address will focus on the economic challenges facing Saint Lucia and the ongoing wage negotiations with public service unions.

According to the Prime Minister, “The issue of wage negotiations is not solely a matter between the government and the public sector unions. It involves the government, the unions and the entire country. It is vital that all sectors of our society and economy understand the nature of the problems confronting us because there will be consequences for all citizens. For this reason, I will lay out the full facts, review the performance of the economy, and the implications of any wage settlement for the future prospects of our economy.”

The address will be delivered on all television networks at 8 p.m.

  1. Kenny is so concerned about St lucia economy why is it that he's not cutting down on government salaries. they are getting a fat salary with benefits. i would love him to tell us where the Vat money is going. the econnomy is bad world wide..... but the ignorant Saint Lucians believed kenny when he said there will be better days. didn't know that Kenny was God.
    Kenny forgot he was pushing civil servants to campaign for an increase now he doesnt want to....CUSTOMER OFFICERS GO STRIKE, TEACHERS STRIKE, NURSES STRIKE, POLICE OFFICERS SICK OUT cause thats what kenny wants.

  2. Is it the same PM who is bloating the public service with political appointees and his supporters at the helm of the supporting unions that act as a powerful voting bloc for his current administration?

  6. looks like kenny give yall a 6 for a 9 boy. all the money thrown away on the mizzy pointless diplomats (party hacks who invested in the elections for their cut)could be used to pay the civil servants. all the step money. all the money wasted on caring for old ppl when there are homes and these ppl have family, just to say: yes, we created jobs. pay up kenny. the civil servants are too afraid to strike now that its slp in power. they give yall poo yall will eat it? kenny came to open doors (stimulus package) for his secret businesses so he could kick back and laugh at us upon his retirement. he never really cared about THE PEOPLE. yall vote for labour was more like a sentencing. five years hard labour. dont blame me. i didnt vote. good luck with that raise. cut back kenny n pay up rasta

  7. The economic hardship was always there, as a matter of fact it was worst when King gave us 14.5%. He did not remember this when he told us that it will be better day? Jobs , Jobs and more Jobs. That was his the theme for labour last election. I want the better days. give us the 15%. I should be better not worse off..
