Co-Chairman of the Public Sector Transformation Oversight Committee, P-STOC, Danny Roberts, is urging a different approach to the ongoing wage negotiations between the government and unions representing public sector workers.
Negotiations for the 2017/2019 contract period have been contentious, with the unions reportedly asking for salary increases ranging from 30 to 100 per cent.
The government has offered only 6 percent over the two years.
Roberts says this traditional approach to negotiations doesn’t work.
He’s advocating for a less adversarial approach, in which both sides take the other into consideration.
Mr. Roberts says this is a win-win.
