Better Wages For Postal Workers
The Guyana Postal & Telecommunication Workers’ Union plans to soon take industrial action against the Guyana Post Office cooperation as its union members have not seen an increase in wages and salaries for some time now. This move by the union comes after several attempts were made to engage management to revisit the current pay for workers.
The union’s President, Harold Shepherd said a proposal was submitted to the management of the Post Office since last year.
Shepherd highlighted attempts made by the Ministry of Labour to have the union and the cooperation come to an agreement on the issues affecting workers. He noted that based on the poor response by the cooperation’s management it leaves the union with no other choice but to take industrial action.
The union is also perusing clarification on the service termination of the former postmaster at Rose Hall-Town Post office and the dismissal of the former Postmaster at Port Kaituma.
