KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Two of the biggest trade unions in Jamaica have signed a contract with the government to freeze wages for state workers for three more years.
Public sector employees have been working under a pay freeze for the last five years.
The police syndicate and other unions have not signed the new contract. They argue that their members have suffered enough with stagnant paychecks.
Civil Service Association leader O'Neil Grant is calling for the remaining unions to sign the deal for the good of the country.
