Suriname: CLO board and government discuss twk and 25 percent wage increase for civil servants

The government has requested more space from the Central Government Service Organizations (CLO), up to and including 27 November, to assess the extent to which it can pay the twk and 25 percent wage adjustment to national servants. This says CLO chairman Ronald Hooghart. The board was received by the government on Wednesday.

The government was represented by Minister Albert Ramdin of Foreign Affairs, International Business and International Cooperation and his colleague Armand Achaibersing of Finance and Planning. “The only thing the government says is that thing ‘no ab moni’, but we are waiting to see what they are going to do ‘because a san’ kon un ede k’ba ‘again.”

According to the trade unionist, the announced protest will not be abandoned, but space will be given to the government. “We will see what it will be. They asked to talk again on Friday and we’ll see, ”says Hooghart.

The CLO board announced street actions during a meeting this week because of the lack of payment of the twk and the 25 percent wage adjustment. National servants have also expressed concern about the current living situation.
