Police Federation, Finance Ministry wage standoff heightens

Tension is mounting between the Police Federation and the Finance Ministry regarding wage talks as the Federation has issued a statement on Monday confirming a report by RJR News that it is prepared to take legal action to protect its members' interest.
It also expressed concern and disappointment with public utterances by Minister of Finance Audley Shaw, regarding what it says is an erroneous calculation of 34 per cent over four years for salaries and the planned payment of retroactive salaries to public sector workers this month. 
Police Federation Chairman Sergeant Cecil McCalla, said if the Finance Ministry goes ahead and pays the members despite no wage agreement being signed, it would be a serious breach of trust and good faith. 
The group has written to the Finance Minister seeking clarification.
