The Public Service Union (PSU) last week informed the press that the letter issued to Chi is riddled with procedural errors. PSU President Dean Flowers said that matter reeks of political victimization. Former President Jacqueline Willoughby-Wright shared her views on the matter when she appeared today on Love TV’s The Morning Show.
Jacqueline Willoughby-Wright, Former President, PSU: “ By all accounts the Prime Minister getting on television and saying “I called him.” in and of itself is unacceptable. He should not call a public officer. He was to call his minister, his minister was to call the Chief Forest Officer or his CEO. The CEO would instruct the Chief Forest Officer. The Chief Forest Officer would then speak to the supervisor of the officer who would then speak to him. No minister of cabinet should be calling any subordinate. The public service is a system, it is a system placed to assist government to achieve its social obligations with people.”
Troy Gabb, Host, The Morning Show: Well that is ultra eye-opening because that’s what happened. That is what happened consistently , this is the norm.
Jacqueline Willoughby-Wright, Former President, PSU: “That is reason the union have consistently said for years, the political interference in the public service has brought it where it is.”
