A former top civil servant has been appointed chairwoman of the Public Service Negotiation Team.

Judith Hall-Bean replaces Jonathan Smith, a ex-police commissioner and a former Progressive Labour Party senator, who has stepped down due to work commitments.

Walton Brown, Minister for the Cabinet Office, said: “I anticipate that Mrs Hall-Bean will bring significant expertise and professionalism to the role, having served as lead negotiator for the Government during the course of her career at the most senior levels of the public service.

“The public is aware that the PSNT is responsible for leading our union negotiations.

“I wish to thank Mr Smith for his service to the PSNT and acknowledge his dedication and commitment to the negotiations process.

“This government will continue to work with the unions to settle outstanding issues related to the terms and conditions of service whilst simultaneously cultivating improved organisational performance as we work towards a future-forward Government for the people of Bermuda.”

Vincent Hollinsid and Orrin Simmons are the other members of the PSNT.
