Challenges in public service labour, industrial relations

first_imgDear Editor,In the public service and the expanded State sector, and statutory bodies, industrial relations and collective bargaining are more regulated and restricted by legislation or practice than in the Private Sector. With the introduction of structural adjustment type measures in some countries, including the reduction of public expenditure in the Public Sector, industrial relations drifted from the traditional system. Deviations and new practices by agencies of the State challenge the free collective bargaining model and autonomy of the negotiating parties through greater State direction, intervention, regulation, legislation and remuneration policies.These developments are understood against the emergence of the dominant, public service and growing State enterprises through nationalisation, or through the creation of national entities/agencies. In these situations, governments, as employers of major sections of the work force, exercise significant influences in industrial relations under the notion of promoting the national interest in the wider community.In some countries, much to the disquiet of trade unions and workers, Government as a employer, promoted changes in the system without legislation within the context of an apparent voluntary framework in the collective bargaining process. In other cases, changes were introduced by legislation. In the State sector, greater control and regulation are imposed on collective bargaining, and these affect wage fixing and remuneration settlements in particular. Governments are implementing unilateral wage policies through rigid wages guidelines. As a consequence, both the trade unions and the managers of the State enterprises lost their autonomy in collective bargaining.On labour standards, the Caribbean Community (Caricom) Declaration of Labour and Industrial Relations Principles, based on international labour standards and other international instruments, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, are the relevant labour standards. The Caricom Declaration on Labour and IR is an important policy guide on labour matters and can contribute to the conduct of industrial relations both in the Public and Private Sectors. This Declaration is also consistent with Caricom’s Charter of Civil Society, expanded on labour standards, and is intended to be used as the basis for the development of national labour policies, and to inform the enactment of modern labour legislation in member States.For labour relations in the public service, the right to bargain collectively as defined in ILO Conventions Nos. 98 on the Right to Organise and Collective Bargaining, and 151 on Labour Relations in the Public Service, ratified by Caricom Countries and Guyana are International Treaties, raise several questions in connection with the approach by public authorities. For example, an administrative direction whereby the conclusion of an agreement is subject to prior approval of a Government authority, or modifying conditions agreed and written in collective labour agreements, or preventing negotiations of such conditions as may be considered desirable, constitute infringements of the right to bargain collectively. Restrictive measures that render it extremely difficult for wages to be settled freely through collective bargaining in the Public Sector can be justified on the grounds of exceptional circumstances of a serious economic nature. However, this could be justified only for a limited period and kept to a minimum.Convention No 151 with its Recommendation No 159 provides for: protection of public employees’ right to organise; non-interference by public authorities; negotiation or participation in determining terms and conditions of employment; and machinery for settling disputes concerning terms and conditions of employment. This Convention 151 provides for public servants to have the same rights of representation and negotiations in Industrial Relations as outlined in Convention 87 and Convention 98 in keeping with good labour relations between public authorities and public service unions/associations.Settlement of disputes in the public service: The settlement of disputes relating to the determination of terms and conditions of employment shall be sought through negotiations between the parties or through independent and impartial machinery such as conciliation/mediation, and arbitration (Convention No 151 – Article 8). In keeping with the provisions of this Guyana ratified Convention, the persons or bodies competent to negotiate on behalf of the public authority concerned and the procedure for giving effect to the agreed terms and conditions of employment should be given a full mandate to finality.Yours faithfully,Samuel J Goolsarranlast_img read more

Region 6 admin to write Govt on hijacking of agriculture budget

first_img…after Cabinet instructs $$$ be handed over to NDIAThe Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) administration has taken a decision to write Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan on its disappointment by moves by the Agriculture Ministry to have the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA) take over the agriculture budget for that region.Regional Chairman David ArmoganThe decision was made at a special sitting of the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) on Wednesday.Regional Chairman David Armogan told the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) that it was a Cabinet decision to have the $114 million from the capital budget transferred to the NDIA.The Region has a capital budget of $221 million for agriculture and of that amount $106 million will be spent to purchase a bulldozer.Armogan also noted that a further $108 million, which represents the current budget, is also to be transferred to the NDIA. The entire agriculture budget for the region is $370 million.He said the administration was informed by a letter from the NDIA of the situation. However, there was no memorandum from Cabinet.Councillor Zamal HussainHe explained that the Region has 18 Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (NDCs) and many could not adequately provide all the needed services for residents and as such, the regional administration would include in its budget projects for those NDCs.“These works would have entailed the continuation of the primary drainage system as well as the sluices and other structures that are related to drainage and irrigation. So it is not only clearing of the primary system, it also has to do with sluices…”Armogan also noted that the regional administration has responsibility for drainage and irrigation, outside the declared NDIA cultivation areas.No consultationAddressing the issue, Councillor Zamal Hussain argued that there was no consultation with the RDC on the issue nor was any approval given by the RDC for its budget to be handed over to the NDIA.“It (RDC) is the second-tier government of the governance of this country. It is being constituted by an election with voters from the Region. The people of this region have mandated the Regional Democratic Council to make decisions for them at any level. In any democracy, there should be respect for an elected council,” he noted.He said the NDIA has not been performing as expected in Region Six, adding that several pieces of equipment have been out of service for several months.“The mini-excavators – they have 12 and only one is working. The large excavators, they have six and most of them are down,” Hussain added.He said if the NDIA is allowed to have the regional agriculture budget, hundreds would lose their jobs. These, he added, are persons in the Region who work on the maintenance of canals utilising funds from the current budget.“It is a political move. The RDC needs to wake up and enforce the law.”Hussain added that the RDC would welcome the NDIA to monitor its work, but it must respect the RDC.Cabinet’s decisionAnother Councillor Haseef Yusuf, weighing in on the issue, pointed out that the National Budget was approved in December 2018 and questioned when Cabinet made such a decision, noting that such a decision was in violation of Article 9 of the Constitution.He also quoted President David Granger, who at the National Congress of Local Democratic Organs in July 2018, said that RDCs and NDCs were bound by the Constitution to provide certain services, which include drainage and irrigation.He called on Cabinet to withdraw its decision.“They are trying to hijack the sovereignty of the people of Region Six,” he said.Prime Minister Regional Representative Gobin Harbhajan, in his capacity as a Regional Councillor, told the RDC that he communicated with the Agriculture Minister and the Head of the NDIA, Frederick Flatts prior to the meeting.He said he was told by Flatts that there was a consultation in the Region with the Regional Executive Officer (REO).“I don’t know how it was done … Minister told me that a committee was set up headed by the Minister of Communities, the Minister of Public Works and (Agriculture) Minister (Noel) Holder.”He said the committee came up with two proposals – 1) to have the RDC take care of the entire D&I system or 2) to have the NDIA and Central Government handle the regional D&I system.Both proposals Harbhajan said were presented to Cabinet.Vice Chairman Dennis DeRoop explained that in 2018, the NDIA was unable to give the two Water Users Associations their subventions and as such, it was the RDC that had to chip in.He also noted that the NDIA did not clear any of the three outfall channels along the Corentyne Coast last year, forcing the Region to utilise its savings to undertake that project.Following the debate, a decision was then taken to first pen a letter to the Communities Minister. The RDC has also agreed to write the Agriculture Minister on the issue.last_img read more

Guyana Embassy in US signs MoU with Diaspora body to enhance cooperation

first_imgOn August 29, 2019, Guyana’s Ambassador to the United States, Dr Riyad Insanally and President of the United Guyanese Diaspora Global Network, Corp (UGDGN), Wayne Forde, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the Embassy of Guyana in Washington, DC.According to a release from the Embassy, the primary aim of this MoU is to enhance cooperation between the Embassy and UGDGN – an umbrella body for Guyanese Diaspora organisations in the USA, aimed at strengthening engagement between the Government of Guyana and the Guyanese Diaspora.In his remarks, Ambassador Insanally expressed delight at signing the MOU, almost exactly a year after initial discussions between the two sides began, noting that it was a necessary step in establishing more structured and systematic engagement between the Government and the Diaspora.Forde, in his remarks, thanked Ambassador for facilitating the signing of the MoU and stated that UGDGN was looking forward to working closely with the Embassy, particularly in providing much-needed assistance to school children in Guyana, among other areas, as part of its efforts towards “Building Bridges to a Brighter Future for Guyana”.Forde also highlighted the fact that earlier in 2019, UGDGN had signed a MoU with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) to collaborate on projects that would produce a positive impact for Guyana. In addition, UGDGN is planning the first Guyanese Diaspora Youth Leadership and Entrepreneurship Conference for 2020.The signing ceremony was witnessed by several members of UGDGN and Staff of the Embassy.last_img read more

Disgruntled residents block river leading to RUSAL

first_imgDisgruntled residents have once again blocked a section of the Berbice River leading to the RUSAL company at Aroaima, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice).This is the second time in little over a week that the section of the river has been blocked with wire rope by residents protesting the recent sacking of 61 workers attached to the company for striking against a one per cent salary increase.Guyana Times understands that after news broke that the company was refusing to reinstate the employees, the dissatisfied residents decided to block the river and sections of the road leading to the company’s operations.Meanwhile, Regional Vice Chairman Elroy Adolph indicated that a number of additional employees received letters from the company via post mail on Monday.The letter dated February 20, 2019, noted that the company had decided to close sections of its operations and lay off some employees.“It is our hope that the layoff will not be for more than the period stipulated by law… You will be paid wages up to the 20th of February 2019. Starting from 21st of February to date prior to recall you will be paid, during the period of lay-off, wages equivalent to 56 hours basic per week…”, a copy of the letter seen by this publication stated.Adolph said he was informed that approximately 90 employees were issued the letters. Further, he added that this is “adding insult to injury”.“Because when the Government is fighting for you to reinstate those, you are taking others off…I personally believe that they (company) must honour all agreements… in the future I hope we’re able to make better arrangements with foreigners who are coming to work…It’s very bad for us”, Adolph said.Adolph, who was part of the recent meeting hosted with company and Government officials at Aroaima noted that the company was urged to honour the labour laws.last_img read more

Your chance to win €7,000 in Enterprise Awards

first_imgA total prize fund of €7,000 and a chance to compete in the national finals is up for grabs for Donegal businesses in this year’s Donegal Enterprise Awards, and entries to the competition are now open.However, previous awards winners have insisted that it’s not just the prize fund – but the positive spin-off afterwards – that has really paid dividends for their businesses.Road maintenance company RoadTeam Ltd provide cost-effective alternative road maintenance solutions and having scooped the innovation award in 2010, they went one better in 2013 when they took the overall prize. That proved to be a major benefit for the company says Adrian Britton, who explained that RoadTeam secured new business on the back of their success.“We tendered for work in Aberdeenshire and we hadn’t worked with these people before. When they saw on our website that we had won the overall award in the Donegal Enterprise Awards, they gave us the contract.”Adrian, has encouraged small businesses in Donegal to enter the 2017 awards, and insisted taking part in the competition is a superb learning experience and one that is of immense benefit.“The awards gave us a real focus on the business side of things and we had everything in order for 2013 when we won the overall prize, but the process has taught us how important it is to keep a focus on the business.” Joe Bonnar Metal Crafts Ltd – who export their high-quality bespoke metal products all over the world – were winners of the Best Established Business category in the 2016 Donegal Enterprise Awards and Mark Patton agreed that taking part in the competition really gave them focus.“Honestly, I’d say like a lot of businesses probably think, when the awards came up last year I thought we just didn’t have the time to be entering them. We were so busy, but having been through the process I am really glad that we did.Once we committed to entering it did give us the jolt we needed to look at the business and the whole process gave us a lot of confidence and renewed self-belief.”Mark said that their company had never really engaged with the Local Enterprise Office until a few years ago and he also urged businesses to consider entering the awards.“I know that the awards are open to all small businesses, not just ones that currently engage with the LEO and I really would recommend to any business to make sure they enter and to engage with Donegal Local Enterprise Office. We hadn’t done that until just around two years ago, but since then the assistance, the sharing of information and the tips on day to day running of the business we have got, have all been priceless.Winning the award, was the icing on the cake for us. It was great in terms of the publicity we got and it was a great boost for our staff, great reward for all their hard work.”Gina Witherow of Donegal English Language School was also thrilled to have won the prize in the Best Established Business category when they entered the awards in 2015.“A lot of work went into the application, but I found it really rewarding. It’s a great process to sit back on reflect on where you are in the business and also to give yourself a pat on the back to say well done for all that hard work.” The 2017 Donegal Enterprise Awards competition is open to all business sectors in Donegal employing less than 50 full-time staff, with the exception of previous county winners who are not eligible to enter. A business does not need to have had any previous contact with the Local Enterprise Office to enter the awards.This year’s competition will see awards presented in the following categories:• Overall Winner• Best Established Business• Best Start Up Business (18 months or less)• Innovation AwardFrom these a representative will be chosen to represent Donegal at the National Enterprise Awards Final.The application form, guidelines for the judging criteria, marking system and competition guidelines are all available to download from the Donegal Local Enterprise Office website:https://www.localenterprise.ie/Donegal/Training-Events/Donegal-Business-Awards-2017/Your chance to win €7,000 in Enterprise Awards was last modified: January 20th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalEnterprise Awardslast_img read more
