Civil Servants Shelve Strike Plans, Opt To Negotiate With Govt

Civil servants have shelved plans to strike and will resume negotiations with Government on Monday over their salaries and conditions of service.

Civil Servants had issued a 14-day strike notice which lapsed on Thursday but have shelved the plans to down tools in favour of dialogue to find a lasting solution. Apex Council chairperson Mrs Cecelia Alexander said they would meet Government early next week. Said Alexander:

Government has invited us to a meeting early next week,” she said. “We have to sit down and map the way forward. There is no law that says we should immediately go on strike when the notice lapses. We, as Apex Council, have not yet declared a strike. Industrial action is declared, but for now we are dialoguing.

Alexander said as workers they expected Government to have improved on its 19% offer.
