Public health inspectors say no to seven per cent wage increase

Another public sector union is set to reject the Government’s wage offer.

The Jamaica Association of Public Health Inspectors says the Ministry of Finance is expected to make a written response to its wage claim by August 14.

However, already the inspectors have indicated that they will not accept the proposed seven per cent increase over four years.

In the meantime, the Jamaica Association of Public Health Inspectors has also rejected the proposal for a $4,000 across the board increase for all public sector workers.

The association says the Jamaica Confederation of Trade Unions may be in favour of that arrangement because most of the workers it represents fall within a certain income level that would make the proposal attractive.
