Government reform minister Lovitta Foggo met union leaders last week to discuss “change management” as part of an attempt to improve public service efficiency.

The Government said a strategic plan to provide a “comprehensive road map to achieve more efficient delivery of quality public service” was being prepared.

Ms Foggo and the Bermuda Public Services Union discussed the plan at the first of a series of meetings on Thursday.

Ms Foggo said on Friday: “As I have stated, our relationship with our union partners will be based on mutual respect, regular communication, proactive policies and teamwork.

“Yesterday’s meeting was aimed at discussing change management and agreeing a way forward, as we believe their input and active participation is imperative to the success of innovation in government.”

The Government completed negotiations late last year which resulted in collective bargaining agreements with the BPSU and the Fire Services Association.

Agreements in principle have been reached with the Bermuda Industrial Union and the Bermuda Union of Teachers.
