NUPW not jumping gun

Social Share

PUBLIC WORKERS ARE YEARNING for a salary increase, but the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) does not intend to jump the gun on the matter.

President Akanni McDowall, speaking during the May Day parade from the Garrison Savannah to Browne’s Beach, Bay Street, yesterday, said his union would be following protocol.

“I have to be responsible too. I can’t just go out there and tell workers to take action because they feel that they should get a salary increase. When the time is right, we would do what we have to do but in the meantime we will follow the process,” he said.

The NUPW is asking Government to give workers a 23 per cent salary increase. (TG)
