Clerical and technical staff employed with the Saint Lucia Cooperative Credit Union League will now work within a unionized working environment. This development is as a result of successful negotiations undertaken on their behalf between the Management of the Cooperative League and the National Workers Union (NWU).
The employees will benefit from an upward revised wage adjustment tied to productivity and performance. All customary benefits shall continue along with the implementation of compensation for overtime, Meal, Breakfast and Dinner Allowances. A goodwill lump sum payment of one thousand dollars ($1000.00) will be paid to all employees. The company also agreed to allow its workers to participate in educational programmes organized by the National Workers Union.
This new industrial package will be signed shortly. Meanwhile, the NWU has submitted a Memorandum of Proposals to the Saltibus Cooperative Credit Union for their consideration.
