St. Lu­cia Trade Union Fed­er­a­tion Pro­duc­tiv­ity Work­shop Sched­uled For Late Fe­bru­ary

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Con­tin­u­ing its ef­forts to en­hance pro­duc­tiv­ity in Saint Lu­cia, the Na­tional Com­pet­i­tive­ness and Pro­duc­tiv­ity Coun­cil (NCPC) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Trade Union Fed­er­a­tion (TUF) has or­gan­ised a two day pro­duc­tiv­ity work­shop, the ob­jec­tive be­ing to ed­u­cate mem­bers of the TUF on the sub­ject of pro­duc­tiv­ity. The event, which is set to take place on the 25th and 26th Fe­bru­ary, 2015, aims to work to­wards the for­mu­la­tion of poli­cies that can be ad­vo­cated by the trade union move­ment in en­hanc­ing the pro­duc­tiv­ity of its mem­bers. In do­ing so, the work­shop in­tends to aid in sen­si­tis­ing mem­bers on the role that needs to be taken by trade unions in an ef­fort to drive pro­duc­tiv­ity.

The first day of the work­shop will fo­cus on ex­plor­ing the con­cept of pro­duc­tiv­ity. Ac­tiv­i­ties will con­cen­trate on defin­ing the no­tion and clar­i­fy­ing mis­con­cep­tions. The day’s un­der­tak­ings will also draw ref­er­ence to the find­ings of the first Na­tional Pro­duc­tiv­ity Study ever con­ducted in Saint Lu­cia. The study, which was com­mis­sioned by the NCPC last year, mea­sured pro­duc­tiv­ity lev­els in the econ­omy from the year 2000 through to 2013. The sec­ond day of the work­shop will re­late di­rectly to the Trade Union Move­ment and pro­duc­tiv­ity. The lat­ter part of the day will fo­cus on pri­ori­tis­ing ideas which were dis­cussed ear­lier.
