Salary parity exercise among measures to implement new salary arrangements at Utech
A salary parity exercise for administrative staff is among the measures being undertaken by the University of Technology (Utech) to implement new salary arrangements.
This in the wake of industrial action by staff in recent weeks, to air their grouse over wage talks, as well as the staff members’ rejection, of a recent compensation package offer, from the government.
Utech President, Dr. Kevin Brown told Irie FM News, that the aim of the parity exercise, is to have equivalence in the market.
Noting the general impact of the compensation review, Dr Brown said, Utech’s management is seeking to ensure, that its workers get their fair share.
Dr Brown also acknowledged that students are adversely affected when staff take industrial action, so the intention, is to quickly conclude negotiations, and avoid this.
He called on the ministers of finance and education to assist with the negotiations, so an agreement can be reached.
