An emergency meeting of the Bermuda Police Association was held yesterday amid concerns over the state of employment negotiations.

Leaders of the organisation sought feedback from its members on how best to proceed.

Sergeant Andrew Harewood, the chairman of the association, said: “The executive of the BPA are not happy with the way negotiations are going so that’s why the emergency meeting was called — to get directions from the membership.”

The Progressive Labour Party committed to finishing negotiations with public sector unions on terms and conditions in its 2017 General Election platform.

David Burt, the Premier, said last July that the promise, which was to be fulfilled within the PLP’s first 100 days in government, was mostly completed but that negotiations with the police association continued.
