Stop misleading the nation – government tells Chastanet and Isaac
Chastanet.
Chastanet.

STATEMENT – In several interviews appearing in the evening news on Monday, June 23, 2014, both Allen Chastanet, Political Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP) and Ms. Mary Isaac, President of the Civil Service Association (CSA), told the nation that wages and salaries will be cut in July.

Mary Isaac went further to say that an “order” has been given to the treasury to cut wages and salaries in July and that if salaries are cut in June/July, public servants will protest.

The Government of Saint Lucia wishes to state that the statements by Allen Chastanet and Mary Isaac are false. No such order has been given to cut wages and salaries.

Currently, the Government is seeking to engage public sector unions, civil society and members of the public to inform the nation of the economic situation, what has been done to address the fiscal deficit and the options available to deal with this untenable situation.  The Government will continue to update the public on the status of discussions and Government’s actions to deal with the crippling fiscal imbalance.

It is now clear that Allen Chastanet and Mary Isaac are on a campaign to stir up discord and confusion among public sector workers and the nation. Given that the future of Saint Lucia is what is at stake, the Government urges the Opposition and the CSA President to cease from spreading false information to the public.

Mary Isaac.

Only on Monday, a Press Release was issued by the Office of the Prime Minister, advising the public that the Government has decided to yield to the requests of public sector unions and activate the Government Negotiating Team (GNT).

It is puzzling that such statements would be made by Allen Chastanet and echoed by Mary Isaac. These comments are untrue, irresponsible and misleading and should be withdrawn.

  1. I think it is time we give a new party a chance at the helm. Clearly the two established parties are more concerned with being in power than the future of the country. Give lamp a chance. What more damage could they do that these two haven't done already?

  8. With all what that is happening Mary Isaac ask Customs "The containers that are leaving customs without inspection and without opening them, where they went to, who does these containers belongs to? ho pays for the overtime for these containers? Poor St. Lucians, we cannot afford to bring down a barrel far less a container. We are these containers now? Expose them Mary. What is not good for one should not be good for the other.

    Just as Kenny is on his last term so is Mary on her last year. Allow her to represent with her all. No time to waste. I was told Minister A B driver leaves Castries, goes down to Laborie, pick him up and drive him to the airport in Vieux Fort to travel, less than 10 minutes from Laborie. Then the driver would have to drive back to Castries. Isn't Alva receiving a travelling allowance, he has a vehicle, whose money is putting fuel in the SLU to make such an unnecessary trip. Wastage by a MINISTER OF GOVERNMENT. Needs investigating.

  10. Kenny has let us down in a big way. He is a traitor whose days are numbered. He and all his gang needs to ship out. I can't stand hearing Alva or Jimmy fletcher...Give another leader a chance. Kenny should let his little 'moose girl' Jadia run a poll for him to see how low he is...she should know how 'low' he gets.

  15. Running a country is like running your household. When things are good, (1997-2007) you can spend outrageously and it doesn't seem to affect anyone. When things are bad, (2008-2014) you see how bad of a manager you are.

  16. The nation should realised that Mary Isaac has a grip to grind with the labour party, If my sources are correct, she wanted to represent the SLP and she was refused as such she will do all in her power to get back at the SLP government. One last thing, I want Mary to come out to tell the nation about her secret meeting with Chastanet to discuss the destabilization of the island’s government. The question should be ask, why all of sudden Chastanet is attending a CSA general meeting? My other concern is the use of the word REVOLUTION by Chastanet. Had it been the other way around one would have heard all commentators shouting at the top of their heads. Tan toe tan toe.

  17. Take a Bow Kenny; you have succeeded in diving the country and polarizing the Public Service.

    Hope you are proud of yourself.

  18. It is precisely the pay back to Jadia and the like that has the country in that mess.

    Tell Jadia to pay taxpayers back their money and shut the hell up.

    An opportunist, if ever there was one.

  19. Jadia is such a jackass. How can you say that the salary cut is not legislated when it reflected int he estimates of expenditure and made law when the appropriations bill was adopted. Jadia stop misleading the people and payback the peoples 80,000.00 dollars to the treasury.
