Progress is being made towards keeping the government’s commitment to give public servants their back pay by Christmas.
This according to Administration Minister Allyson West.
West said that the various agencies are working on the computations, and additional resources have been loaned to the Ministry of Education, in particular, to assist in this exercise.
She added, “The Government of TT is making every effort to ensure that the deadline is met.”
The Minister also stated that some wage negotiations for public servants remain unsettled.
“So the back pay relates to those that have been settled.”
In an interview on October 27, West said the matter is administrative and not a financial issue.
