The Grenada government has announced that it had reached an agreement with two trade unions that were originally refusing to accept the financial package for the period 2013-16.

Labour Minister Oliver Joseph told the House of Representatives that the agreement with the Public Workers Union and the Grenada Technical and Allied Workers Union was reached last night.

The two unions were the last to finalise the agreement package for public workers and only last week staged industrial action in the form of a go slow.

The unions were refusing to accept one thousand EC dollars as a one off payment for the period 2013 to 2016, demanding instead a payment of three thousand EC dollars.
