The government and civil servants’ representatives are meeting in the Capital today in talks aimed at resolving the issue of salaries.
During the last meeting to be held between the two parties, the government tabled a $300 million offer which the civil servants were not ready to take.
The workers are demanding a $1 733 salary for the least paid worker, up from $414. Government workers had initially issued a 14-day strike notice which ended on Friday. They, however, opted against striking instead, choosing to give negotiations a chance.
