President of the Jamaica Confederation of Trade Unions, JCTU, Helene Davis-Whyte, says the back to work protocols are far advanced.

Mrs. Davis Whyte is also a member of the Government’s Economic Recovery Task Force that’s developing the protocols.

All non-essential employees across government and the private sector are expected to return to work on June 1.

But there’ve been concerns ahead of the June 1 start.

President of the Jamaica Civil Service Association, JCSA, O’Neil Grant says child care and public transportation are two factors creating a spot of bother for workers.

He suggested that employers may need to implement flexible work arrangements.
