LocalNews Public officers encouraged to stand together by: – March 13, 2012 Union members at Tuesday afternoon’s meeting.Members of the Dominica Public Service Union (DPSU) have been encouraged by their president to stand together in unity.The DPSU held a special general meeting at its headquarters in Roseau on Tuesday afternoon to inform membership on three matters; the status of salary negotiation between the Union and the government, productivity issue raised by government’s productivity consultant Parry Bellot and pension payments.At that meeting, President of the Union Steve Joseph thanked the membership for their resolve and for staying in tune with the progress of decisions taken by the membership.In encouraging the membership to stand together, Joseph reminded them that the Union is as “powerful as the unity and the resolve that holds members together”. He further encouraged them not to be afraid and to stand up for what is right.“It is when members join their hands together that the employer will quiver and that is why we must not be afraid this afternoon. We must dismiss every fear or apprehension this afternoon. We must find the strength within our stomachs to stand up for what is right and this is what we are doing this afternoon”. Although Joseph noted that many persons thought that the Union’s decision to give the government an ultimatum for a retraction of its productivity consultant’s statement which claimed that 80% of public servants are unproductive without providing any empirical data to support that claim, he told the membership that the decision was “justified.”President of the Union, Steve Joseph“I want to remind us that our actions were justified and government has heard and they know that we mean business and Parry Bellot after his public statement, subsequent explanations and even public outburst that he will not retract, he knows now that this union doesn’t joke. All those who are mistaken and want to test the strength of the Dominica Public Service Union let them come”. Joseph also appealed to public officers who did not attend that they should be “interested in your own welfare, you must be interested in your own pockets and get on board”. According to him, the message which the Union has sent to the government “was loud and clear” but cautioned them however that whatever decision is taken “we must stand together”. Joseph stated; “Parry must know and anybody else who dares to walk in his footsteps; they must know that when they let their tongue loose without facts, without proper assessment that we will not stand for it”.He also reminded the membership of their motto which is; “strength of many, the power of one” urging them to stand together.“We must continue to stand as one for it is when we stand together that we can move the employer to listen to us and this is what is important”.The Union is expected to vote on a resolution which will determine whether they extend negotiations on the triennium period which will end in December 2012 to include a classification exercise or whether they will negotiate for an immediate salary increase without the classification exercise.The classification exercise will include a review of public officer’s job titles and descriptions to assess whether an increase should be given for the duties which are being carried out.Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img Share Tweet 5 Views   no discussionslast_img
