SERHA pays up

77

The South East Regional Health Authority, SERHA, has made good on its promise to pay millions owed in outstanding salary deductions for its workers.

This puts an end to the stalemate between the union representing the workers – the Jamaica Association of Local Government Officers, JALGO and SERHA.

For several months SERHA workers were agitating after monies taken from their salaries were never paid over to the relevant institutions with whom they have standing financial arrangements.

At the expiration of the first ultimatum on Tuesday, SERHA asked for two additional days.

JALGO’s General Secretary, Helene Davis Whyte, says the outstanding amounts are being paid.

Mrs. Davis Whyte says she’s confident all payments will be made to the institutions in a timely manner.
