City con­stab­u­lary pen­sion­ers still await­ing retroac­tive pay

Stabroek News Sunday - - REGIONAL NEWS -

Dear Editor, It has been over one year since we the pen­sion­ers of the city con­stab­u­lary have been fooled.

From 2017 to 2018 the Mayor and City Coun­cil kept promis­ing to pay us our retroac­tive which was due over one year ago. In June 2018 they paid us the in­crease in our pen­sion and told us the retroac­tive would be paid be­fore lo­cal govern­ment elec­tion. Lo­cal govern­ment elec­tions are fin­ished and they did not pay us our retroac­tive. In­stead they paid us the Oc­to­ber pen­sion in Novem­ber after elec­tions which clearly proved they don’t want to pay us what right­fully be­longs to us.

Come on, we don’t even know when they would pay us our Novem­ber pen­sion. Pun­ish­ing Christ­mas for we the pen­sion­ers of the city con­stab­u­lary. Sad.

We are kindly ask­ing the lo­cal govern­ment min­is­ter and the Pres­i­dent of Guyana, Mr. David Granger to look into this mat­ter and help us the pen­sion­ers of the city con­stab­u­lary who served the Mayor and City Coun­cil over thirty years. Yours faith­fully, (Name and ad­dress sup­plied) Dear Editor, The In­dian Ac­tion Com­mit­tee (IAC) wishes to ad­vise the gen­eral pub­lic, that the organization has launched its an­nual Christ­mas Toy Drive for the less for­tu­nate chil­dren which will end on Fri­day, 21st De­cem­ber 2018.

The goal of the IAC is to ac­cu­mu­late toys for at least three hun­dred un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren of all eth­nic­i­ties to dis­trib­ute at the organization’s an­nual Chil­dren’s Christ­mas Party sched­uled for Sun­day, 23rd De­cem­ber 2018.
