As firefighters went on strike Wednesday in protest over delayed negotiations with the government and unaddressed concerns dating back several years, the Police Welfare Association (PWA) has declared that it is satisfied with ongoing negotiations.

However, in a statement to St Lucia Times, the PWA made it clear that it stands in solidarity with other unions.

“The Police Welfare Association has expressed its satisfaction with the current negotiations with the Government Negotiating Team (GNT),” the PWA statement observed.

“The two entities have had cordial meetings and negotiations are ongoing,” it asserted.

But the association at the same time expressed support to the other unions and said it would like to see a ‘speedy resolution’ to the impasse between the GNT and the other unions.

Both the Saint Lucia Civil Service Association (CSA) and the Saint Lucia Teachers Union (SLTU) have expressed dissatisfaction with the pace of negotiations.

Both unions met their members on Monday to discuss the issue.

  1. Police are dividing the unions in this negotiations. SATISFIED? Mr Chiquot come again. Police watch your bread

  2. In all fairness, I am of the opinion the word satisfied sends the wrong notion amidst all the sensation and hyped tempers on island. I was hoping to have heard the article make mention of being satisfied with the proposal from the GNT, but it didn’t. I am hoping that statement speaks to satisfaction for meeting the GNT more than the other respective unions. Just speculating 🤔

  3. Since Chiquot is so satisfied he should qualify that by telling the public what it is that he is exactly satisfied with. After he tried desperately to divide the workers by trying to form his own federation, he now says he supports them. We cannot be fooled by Chiquot and his mentor Spider Montoute.
