NUPW: Govt let us down
THE NATIONAL?UNION OF PUBLIC WORKERS (NUPW) says it has gained nothing but a broken promise from Government even though it kept faith with the current administration for nearly six years.
And an emotional NUPW?general secretary Dennis Clarke expressed his disappointment to an audience that included Prime Minister Freundel Stuart during the opening of the union’s 70th annual general conference on Thursday night at its Dalkeith Road, St Michael headquarters.
Clarke also used the forum to blast the island’s Social Partnership.
Noting the last salary increase for the public service was in 2009, the longstanding union leader said the NUPW proposals between 2010 and 2014 were based on the promise by Government that there would be no lay-offs but the union had gained nothing.
