Public sector layoffs delayed

The planned termination of 3,000 public sector workers won’t begin Wednesday after all.

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart announced a short while ago, after hours of talks with representatives from the unions, that the layoffs have been delayed until the end of this month at the latest.

He explained that it had been a challenge completing the list of persons who will go on the breadline and more time was needed to generate that list.

Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler announced last month that about 3,000 Government workers would be sent home between January 15 and March 1 this year.
