“NO TO PAY CUTS” With A Massive New Mandate In Hand, St Lucian Advocate Remains Defiant
PRESIDENT of Castries’ Civil Service Association (CSA), Mary Isaac says her Association will stand firm against any move by Kenny Anthony’s government to cut public servants salaries by five percent.
Isaac’s announcement came while a meeting between government and public sector trade unions was taking place yesterday, one which she did not attend and which the CSA had no official representation at.
Isaac who was returned to the presidency of the CSA by a rather large margin after votes were counted Wednesday night following elections, has already irked the government by remarks she made during an interview on HTS.
“I say what I had to say,” Isaac told The VOICE. However the government described her remarks as “regrettable and unjustified.”
The government, in a statement yesterday congratulated Isaac and assured public officers that it will continue to work closely with their duly elected representatives to resolve issues of concern to them and the people of the country. (MORE AVAILABLE AT ST LUCIA’S EDITION OF… THE VOICE)
