It’s a deal! Police Federation signs off on wage deal with the Government

The Jamaica Police Federation has finally accepted a wage and fringe benefits offer from the Government.

It apparently took some tweaking of previous offers to finally get the cops to strike a deal on Tuesday, with no greater percentage wage offer, but some improved benefits. These reportedly included a premium shift meal allowance and a more than doubled, annual, one-off, non-taxable holiday payment relative to some years of the agreement.

Reports are that in an effort to realise a deal between the two parties, Police Commissioner, Major Antony Anderson, participated in the meeting with the minister, which is believed to have helped to resolve the dispute.
