Public Service Union Urges Government for More Progress on Good Governance

The President of the Public Service Union, Dean Flowers, says the government is working towards its campaign promise of good governance but needs to do more. Yesterday, the joint union negotiating team (JUNT) met with government representatives to discuss several issues raised by the unions. The discussion surrounds the enactment of new legislation aimed at developing a scheme for pension reform and tackling corruption. Flowers spoke to Love News yesterday and explained that the unions feel the government is taking some steps in the right direction.

Dean Flowers, President, Public Service Union: “Most recently the civil asset and unexplained wealth order bill was passed. So we are making some progress there and we hope that additional legislation will be forthcoming that will ensure better governance. But what I’m hoping for in this round of conversation, discussion, negotiations with the government is that ultimately there will be a complete overhaul of the system. We do not only need complete revision of the constitution. We need a complete overhaul of the system of government and especially an overhaul of the public service.”
