Social Security Board Union Members on Go-Slow Over Transfer Policies Dispute
The union members attached to the Social Security Board (SSB) are now on a go-slow. The decision was made after their meeting with CEO Deborah Ruiz failed to result in any action of fair-play. According to the media representative for the union, Ella Waight, they were hoping for a quick resolution to the issue of standard transfers, but that was not the case. The point of contention surrounds one non-union staff member at SSB who has not been subjected to transfer for nine years. The over 20 inspectors countrywide are now clamoring for a level playing field as transfer policies stipulate transfers to occur every three years for all inspectors. According to Waight, they will continue their go-slow until a response is had from CEO Domingo.
Minister of the Public Service, Henry Usher has commended the SSB staff for standing up for what should be a standard practice at the organization.
Up to news time this evening, there was still no update to the union from CEO Deborah Ruiz.
