The Government Negotiating Team commended the GUT leadership for their well-fought representation of their members and for ultimately balancing their constituents’ interests with the national good.
The Government also announced that it has reached settlement and has signed the collective agreement with the Grenada Manual Maritime and Intellectual Workers Union (GMMIWU), for salary increases and fringe benefits for the workers at Laura Estate, Mt Reuil Estate, and for the cooks under the School Feeding Programme, for the negotiation cycle 2017 to 2019.
