The Jamaica Police Federation has agreed to accept the latest wage proposal from the government.

Delegates of the Federation voted to accept the compensation review offer during a virtual meeting on Thursday.

The meeting was marred by technical challenges which caused some confusion among rank-and-file members of the Constabulary following their vote.

Two issues were on the Federation’s ballot. They were whether to accept housing in or housing out of Basic Salary and whether to accept or reject the latest offer from the Government as presented.

Eighty-six percent voted to accept the offer as presented, while 60% of delegates voted to accept the housing in of basic salary.

The Federation has signalled its intent to write to the Ministry of Finance to formally accept the offer.
