I saw this. They need to sort out the anomalies, wrong pay and the 1,000 of my teaching colleagues who have NOT been paid since February.

And the May pay cheques still have anomalies.
Hence the lockdown.

Do not overlook the 1 year retroactive pay which is more than the salary they got for last year..

Governor General salary $34M

YEP. Senior teacher pay for example was agreed at a particular rate. Was NOT paid in March. Paid in April. Then people wdre told they were overpaid and all sorts of confusion. Remember ghe HoA had rates that were AGREED.

Politicians should be AFRAID of the people not the other way around.

Waaaaah! The vast majority of the public sector and teachers are more qualified than them. He would not give her a word. The professionals migrate because they want better pay and conditions. The entire argument is foolishness.

Indeed. As you said. Majority of teachers are trained graduates-some with Master's and PhDs.

Oh ok. It's from The Gleaner. Small group of teachers including a couple of my current work colleagues protesting across from MOF.

camos 2023-05-26 22:31:29 

Nigel said it is a restructuring, in the cases of teachers and nurses; administrators are not struggling as much as the regular folks,it is the classroom teachers that are leaving, regular nurses the same situation.

michaelmax 2023-05-26 22:53:14 

In reply to camos

That is putting it midly. Principals are up to $8-9 million per year. They are NOT struggling.

Headley 2023-05-26 23:22:02 

In reply to Brerzerk

It is crazy. We will soon swap the GG for a President and continue to pay $33M.

Meanwhile senior civil servants who retired > 15 years ago are getting $40,000 per month pensions.

michaelmax 2023-05-27 01:16:28 

In reply to Headley

Its a PART-TIME job at best. The GG performs a few official functions, does certain appointments for $34 million dollars? No. Needs to be a different structure for this or if we have a ceremonial president-a per diem of sorts per chance?
