PM Stuart says public sector jobs safe


Share post:

PUBLIC SERVICE employees who were worried about losing jobs because of the troubled state of the Barbados economy can rest easier.
Prime Minister Freundel Stuart says the financial savings ministries and departments need to make to protect jobs are “within sight”.
He made the comment Sunday night while addressing a Democratic Labour Party (DLP) branch meeting at the Hilda Skeene Primary School.
Stuart said this optimistic picture emerged after a meeting last week with public service leaders.
After Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler delivered the budget in August, employees, trade unionists and politicians had voiced concerns about the possibility of public service job cuts and non-payment of workers. (TY)
