Government officials and some bargaining units under the umbrella of the Jamaica Confederation of Trade Unions, JCTU, last week signed off on a two year wage agreement.

Under the agreement, public sector employees are to receive a seven percent increase over two years.

Workers will also receive a flat monthly rate of 4-thousand dollars over the life of the agreement, along with increases in allowances.
