The Star (St. Lucia) - - CLASSIFIED -

On Wed­nes­day, June 28 2017, the man­age­ment

of the Soufriere Re­gional Devel­op­ment Foun­da­tion (SRDF) and the Civil Ser­vice As­so­ci­a­tion (CSA) con­cluded in­dus­trial ne­go­ti­a­tions for the tri­en­nium 2015 to 2017 with the of­fi­cial sign­ing of the new col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing agree­ment. Em­ploy­ees will ben­e­fit from an up­ward wage ad­just­ment of eight per­cent, with six per­cent of the ne­go­ti­ated in­crease to be paid retroac­tively for the pe­riod Au­gust 2015 to June 2017 and the re­main­ing two per­cent in 2018. “We are ex­tremely pleased with the con­clu­sion of th­ese ne­go­ti­a­tions,” said SRDF Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Jimmy Haynes. “De­spite the losses ex­pe­ri­enced dur­ing the pe­riod 2015 to 2016, we were able to sign off on an eight per­cent salary in­crease with associated fringe ben­e­fits.” The As­sis­tant Gen­eral Sec­re­tary of the CSA, McStephen Au­bertin, lauded the SRDF for its com­mit­ment on see­ing the ne­go­ti­a­tions com­pleted in an am­i­ca­ble and cor­dial fash­ion.

Ne­go­ti­a­tions for the fol­low­ing tri­en­nium will com­mence in Septem­ber 2018.
