Helene Davis Whyte, speaking Monday on RJR's Beyond the Headlines
The Jamaica Government is now facing the possibility of coming under international legal scrutiny from the Labour Relations community, based on the controversy developing in wage negotiations with some public sector groups.
Helene Davis-White, President of the Jamaica Confederation of Trade Unions (JCTU) is threatening to report the government for breaching its legal obligations under the relevant conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO).
This comes as the government is reportedly planning to make certain payments to teachers although wage negotiations have not been completed.
The payments will be based on the recently signed Heads of Agreement with other public sector trade unions.
Mrs Davis-White has concluded that this is in breach of industrial relations practice and has written to Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
While speaking Monday on RJR's Beyond The Headlines she warned that, if things do not change, a report will be made
