Correctional Officers to Sign Heads of Agreement

57

The Jamaica Federation of Correctional Officers says it will be signing the 2015-2017 Head of Agreement.

The union is among several who’ve now accepted the government’s 7-percent wage offer, having originally rejected it.

The Federation had requested a 70-percent wage increase.

Its Chairman is Arlington Turner.
