JTA concerned about MoF planned action

The Jamaica Teachers’ Association, JTA, has been informed  by the Ministry of Finance and Planning  that it intends to pay the first year of the 2017-2019 wage offer with the March salaries despite the fact that we have rejected the offer at a Special Conference at Wolmer’s Boys School on Saturday, March 3, 2018.

We wish to inform our members that the JTA has not agreed to any such payment plan.

Further, the JTA believes that this move is unprecedented in light of the fact that the current salary negotiation has not been concluded nor a Heads of Agreement signed.

If this should happen, we view it as tantamount to union busting and a breach of Collective Bargaining Rights.
