Police Federation to meet with National Security Minister
by Patrice Walters
The Police Federation is to meet today (Mar 13) with National Security Minister Robert Montague.
Police Federation Chairman Sergeant Cecil McCalla says the meeting will be used to alert the minister to the issues facing the federation.
The Federation is engaged in wage negotiations for the 2017/2019 contract period with the Finance Ministry and has rejected a 16 percent wage offer over four years.
However, the Finance Ministry has indicated that that it intends to pay increases with the March salaries.
The Federation says it’s shocked by that move and disappointed at comments from the Finance Minister about a 34 percent increase over 4 years for salaries to cops.
