The Government’s Press Secretary is seeking to set the record straight on claims suggesting that she had disclosed that the Prime Minister would effect a pay cut on public sector workers whether their representative Unions have agreed to it or not.

The statement was allegedly made on Tuesday during a guest appearance on a local talkshow.

Mrs Jadia Jn Pierre Emmanuel says while the government continues to engage public sector unions on the proposal, the discussions cannot continue indefinitely.
