Police to accept Government’s 4 percent offer

Police officers are now willing to accept the Government’s offer of a four per cent increase.

President of the association, acting ASP Gideon Dickson, said the general council of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Social and Welfare Association has given the green light to the executive to accept the four per cent wage offer.

The matter is before the Industrial Court and is likely to be pulled if the association accepts the offer.

Police Social and Welfare Division head Gideon Dickson revealed that during a meeting with the membership, they agreed to take the four per cent along with the allowances offered by the CPO, instead of going through a long drawn-out process before the courts.
