Police Federation, Gov't to discuss wage offer today

Published:Friday | August 2, 2013 | 9:50 AM

Representatives of the Police Federation are to meet with Finance Ministry officials today to discuss the government’s latest wage offer to rank and file members.



The wage proposal, details of which have not been disclosed, was put to the Federation more than two weeks ago.



Following consultations, the Federation said its membership was not in agreement with the offer.



A meeting is to be held this morning at 10 a.m. at the Ministry of Finance to discuss the proposal.



Police personnel have objected to the government’s current wage freeze.



In March, the majority of trade unions signed the government’s Memorandum of Understanding to forego an increase in wages for the contract period 2012-2015.



Wage restraint is one of the key pillars of the government’s deal with the International Monetary Fund.
