Sharecenter_img The Public Service Union (PSU) will hold a press conference to inform the public on issues affecting its membership.One of the issues of concern is a recent statement by government’s Productivity Consultant who they’ve asked to retract his statement which they claim was disrespectful. Last month after government’s Productivity Consultant Parry Bellot stated at a press conference that eighty percent of public servants are unproductive was given seven days to retract that statement or else protest action would be staged. Mr. Bellot responded to the request by saying that he sees “no reason to retract the statement” but that he would be guided by his employer. Public servants met at a special general meeting two weeks ago and expressed disappointment that no government official had defended that statement, describing it as disrespectful to employees. Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit told a press conference last month that he would not accept that figure of 80% without scientific evidence to prove it.The press conference will take place on Friday morning at the Union’s Headquarters on Valley Road. The executive members comprising of President Steve Joseph, Vice President Joseph Peters, General Secretary Thomas Letang, Treasurer Steven LaRocque, Assistant Treasurer Cherry Stuart, Recording Secretary Relda Andre, Assistant Recording Secretary Allison Liverpool and members; Lydia Letang Talbot, Clayton Christian, Glenda Castle, Sheba Bowers Bell, Matilda Popo and Damian Harrigan are expected to attend.Dominica Vibes News Share 39 Views   one commentlast_img
