The President of the Saint Lucia Civil Service Association (CSA) Cyprian Montrope has advised members of the Island’s largest trade union grouping of the finalisation of negotiations with the government.

But he warned that the union is aware that there are individuals or groups who are currently attempting to mislead  members and the public regarding the ongoing negotiations.

Montrope did not go into details.

In a  press statement  Thursday, he disclosed that the negotiations were wrapped on on Monday, July 8, 2019.

“The CSA is happy to report that we have reached settlement on most of the proposals submitted on your behalf,” he told members.

He stated that the CSA wishes to clarify the situation with the following facts:

1. The CSA has submitted to the Government of Saint Lucia the decision regarding salary increases through the TUF on July 1st, 2019.

2. The CSA completed negotiations with the Government of Saint Lucia on Monday 8th July, 2019.

3. All other Public Sectors in the TUF (with the exception of Police and Nurses) completed negotiations on Monday 8th July, 2019

4. The CSA intends to sign the Collective Agreement along with all TUF members on the same day, with the exception of the Police Welfare Association and the Nurses Association.

5. The CSA has informed the GNT of the plight of workers and the sacrifices made during the six-year period and the membership’s desire to get their back pay and increases in the month of July.

“The CSA urges all members to remain vigilant and disregard attempts made by persons wishing to create division among us,” Montrope declared.

According to the CSA President, members should rely only on information provided by officials of the union regarding the negotiations.
