Wage Increase For Non-Management Invest Saint Lucia Staff

Press Release:-  The St. Lucia Civil Service Association (CSA) has concluded negotiations with Invest St. Lucia Ltd. on behalf of its non-management employees.

The parties agreed to a 10% wage increase, an upward adjustment in vacation leave, retroactive pay and gratuity, among others.

There was also agreement that that a performance based incentive plan will be introduced in 2020. It was also agreed that a scholarship programme for the children of employees who are successful at the Common Entrance exam will be introduced.

Meanwhile, the CSA is at its wits end in trying to understand why the Labour Tribunal which met on a matter between the CSA and the St. Lucia Electricity Services Ltd (LUCELEC) has not been able to give its decision.

The Tribunal met in August 2018 and has not been able to give its findings / decision, eight months thereafter.

This is unacceptable and places into question the relevance and effectiveness of such a body in our Industrial Relations system.

The CSA, as the bargaining agent for the Grade 1 employees of LUCELEC, is fed up of this obvious high level of inefficiency and procrastination and has been given the mandate by these workers to initiate whatever action it deems necessary and appropriate to cause the authorities to respond to this matter without further delay.
