Cheap Jerseys USA Executive Secretary

The Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU) is prepared to take possible industrial action if efforts are not made by Guyana Power and Light Incorporated (GPL) to honour improved remuneration proposals made onFrom left: GPSU’s Senior Industrial Relations Officer,Wholesale China Jerseys, Dennis English; Executive Secretary, Indira Thakurdin; First Vice President, Mortimer Livan and Second Vice President Dawn Gardener.behalf of employees represented by the Union.“There are many industrial actions that can be taken…from just a sick out to a full strike,” said GPSU’s First Vice President Mr. Mortimer Livan at a press conference yesterday. The way forward, he noted,Wholesale China Jerseys, will be decided upon when GPSU members meet and discuss the matter tomorrow.At yesterday’s press conference at the GPSU Shiv Chanderpaul Drive and Regent Street, Georgetown, headquarters, Livan noted that “a change of attitude was expected with a change of Government, but instead the same old behaviour prevails.”The press conference, he said, was conducted in order to enlighten the public through the media about “our experiences with the authorities at the Guyana Power and Light Inc. in our pursuit to have improvements in the remuneration for our members, the junior and senior managers of the Guyana Power and Light Inc.”The GPSU, according to Livan, had in fact submitted multi-year proposals for increases in salaries for employees within the Union’s bargaining unit. This, he disclosed, was done since July 2013 and should have spanned the period 2013-2015. Describing the proposals submitted as comprehensive, Livan said that the management of the power company, however, opted to have discussions on only a few aspects of the proposals.“The management of GPL procrastinated in dealing with the proposals. It has again come to the end of the year and still this matter is not resolved to the satisfaction of the employees,Cheap Jerseys From China,” said Livan.According to the GPSU Executive, GPL since 2013 has only met with the Union in November this year. And according to him, “The main contention is the dollars amount.”But Livan insisted,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, yesterday, that the proposed sum should be added to workers’ salaries for this. The Union is representing that the amount of $120,000 be added to the workers’ current salaries and not be paid as a one-off payment as management feels should happen.The Union has proposed increases in meal allowances of $1,500 instead of $1,China NFL Jerseys,000 for employees. Livan is contending, though, that “The management of GPL has an arbitrary fixation in dealing with meal allowances. A meal allowance must be able to purchase liquid refreshment plus a meal.”He also noted that the current travelling allowance is also inadequate for employees who have to use vehicles to execute their duties. The Union is therefore representing that car mileage be $220.The total cost of the Union’s current proposals for 2015, according to Livan, “is a mere fraction of the $27 million the former Deputy Chief Executive Officer siphoned off to his personal accounts claiming to be back payment for increases in his salaries and allowances.”Stressing the income disparity between GPL executive staff and the junior and senior management categories, Livan noted that GPSU is hopeful that this will be adjusted urgently.“The Union wishes to emphasise the pivotal role being played by the employees of the GPL and of the need for urgent attention to be given to improving their remuneration,NFL Jerseys Wholesale,” said Livan as he pointed out that “GPL is the only state run entity whose employees have not benefited from any increase in remuneration for 2015.”According to Livan, the GPSU in an effort to emphasise its disappointment with the GPL’s “callous” attitude has since written to Minister with responsibility for the power company, David Patterson, to intervene in hopes of having an amicable resolution.Minister Patterson has however not acknowledged the GPSU’s correspondence of December 7, 2015, Livan noted, a state of affairs that is of much concern to the Union, he added.
