Termination of weather service staff concerning: Association

The Department of Transport terminated 3 members of the Weather Service Working Committee for pushing the agenda of their salary discrepancies.

The Public Employees Association is concerned in the penal actions taken to terminate 3 members of the working committee and imposing a fine on all the NWS staff for taking part in the strikes organised by NWS between 2017 and 2018.

Pay rise guaranteed for public employees: Association

The increment is consistent with the 2017-2019 Memorandum of Agreement between Department of Personnel Management and Public Employees Association.

Given the downturn in economy and financial constraints faced by the government, the award was not factored in the 2017 and 2018 budgets, hence denying the public servants of the 3 percent increment.

Public Employees Association president, Robert Kutapai, said in a statement that the National Executive Council has now directed the Department of Treasury and Finance to source out funding to facilitate the award.
