BPSU holds meeting tomorrow

The Bermuda Public Services Union has called an emergency meeting of its membership for tomorrow afternoon, following a meeting between its executives and Government yesterday.

Government has proposed to public sector workers that pension fund contributions be frozen for a year in exchange for an eight percent pay cut.

The arrangement is expected to free up about $64 million for Government spending during the next fiscal year which begins on April 1.

It is understood the unions making up the Trade Union Congress have already met with their memberships.

Government yesterday confirmed that the Budget Statement, which will kick off several weeks of debate in the House of Assembly, will be read on February 24.

Tomorrow's meeting takes place at 4 pm at St Paul AME Centennial Hall on Court Street.
