The trade union movement says it will settle for nothing less than what it described as a reasonable wage increase for public servants.
The Chief Personnel Officer has offered a two percent wage increase to cover an eight year period.
Negotiations are scheduled to resume at the collective bargaining table on June 15th.
Speaking at the end of a protest in Port of Spain today which concluded at the Eric Williams Financial Complex, Union Leader, Ancil Roget, urged employees to remain focus on the task at hand which is to get decent wages in spite of the criticism expected to come their way.
Mr Roget said the working class is simply calling for their contribution to national development to be respected by their employer.
President of the Public Services Association, Leroy Baptiste, said the nation must get value for the billions of dollars being spent especially in these challenging times.
Mr Baptiste also urged the government to treat public officers fairly.
