Civil servants’ representative Apex Council has announced that it is set to embark on a collective strike starting on 22 January.
In a letter signed by Apex Council Chairperson Cecilia Alexander, civil servants said they have resolved to embark on a collective job action because meetings with Government have yielded nothing. We publish the letter below:
RE: NOTICE OF COLLECTIVE JOB ACTION
The APEX Council representing the entire civil service hereby serve notice collective job action within the next 14 days from the date of this letter.
The reason for this step is premised on the incapacitation of our members and the failure by government to address the same. The incapacitation comes in the wake of the erosion of our static salaries due to the sky rocketing cost of living.
Despite numerous meetings being held between the government and staff associations, there has not been any tangible results to date.
