Joint Unions Negotiating Team Meets with Government Representatives

Today, the Joint Unions Negotiating Team (JUNT) met with government representatives to discuss issues affecting the unions. The JUNT, comprised of the Belize National Teachers Union, the Public Service Union, and the Association of Public Service Senior Managers (APSSM), were invited to the meeting but said there weren’t provided with many details. Deputy Prime Minister Cordell Hyde explained that the meeting sought to bring the unions to the table to listen to their concerns. 

Cordel Hyde, Deputy Prime Minister: “We were supposed to meet some time ago but we couldn’t get our schedules down pat so we are finally going to meet. We do meet from time to time. We do have ongoing issues. We do have pension reform. We do have a commitment to establish or reestablish a cost savings committee and a revenue enhancement committee. So this is what we do. We have to engage. We have to meet. We have to discuss. We are all leaders of the government, the public officers, the unions, ourselves as government, and so it’s about making sure that we meet and be on the same page and we should have a very interesting meeting, we always do.”
