Teachers meet Tuesday to discuss wage negotiations

The St. Lucia Teachers’ Union is scheduled to meet on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 to discuss the ongoing wage negotiations between government and public servants.

This “extraordinary” national general meeting starts at 10 a.m. at the National Cultural Centre.

According to a bulletin, members of the general council are being asked to meet at 9:30 am at the National Cultural Centre.

Civil servants, through the Trade Union Federation, have rejected government’s four-percent wage increase. On several occasions, some civil servants, including teachers and firemen, have staged a sick out in protest of government’s hardline stance in not budging on its offer.

The government argues that is unable to afford more than four percent due to the economic challenges it is facing.

  1. It is a shame that other companies that engage in wage negotiations with their workers offer them over 9% increase with benefits..while teachers who work hard taking care of illmannered and unruly children with various learning capabilities have to settle for 4%% which breaks down to $15 dollars more the first year and $45 dollars more for the following two years...WHAT'S THAT..school children get more money to go to school nowadays. while there are NINCOMPOOPS in St. Lucia who call them greedy..what benefits one benefits all..as u can see, civil servants negotiating for wage increases have started the ball rolling for other workers to start their negotiations. NOT EVERYONE CAN WORK IN THE CIVIL SERVICE!!SOME PEOPLE NEED TO START CREATING THEIR OWN JOBS AND STOP WAITING FOR JOBS TO COME TO THERM..THIS IS THE SAD REALITY NOW!

  3. GREEDY GREEDY TEACHERS. YOU ALL ARE JUST CONCERN ABOUT YOUR POCKETS. EVERY MONTH YOU GET A SALARY WHAT'S ABOUT THOSE WITH ALL THEIR QUALIFICATION AND CAN'T FIND WORK. IF I WERE IN THE GOVERNMENT PLACE I WOULD GIVE THE INCREASE TO THE HARDWORKING ONES AND FIRE THE REST OF YOU WHO JUST SIT AROUND DOING NOTHING IN THE CLASSROOMS.
