August salaries under new TUF agreement delayed

The Collective Agreements between the Government Negotiating Team and the Unions that make up the Trade Union Federation were signed off on Tuesday August 20th, 2019.

Bearing in mind the commitment given by the GOSL to process the August salaries using the new pay rates and benefits; and the limited time for processing to meet the August 22nd pay date, the Accountant General’s Department (AGD) worked assiduously to ensure that the commitment was met.

To this end the AGD has advised that processing of salaries for the month of August is complete, however the submissions to the various financial institutions have not met the established deadlines and this will result in delayed processing.  The Accountant General is in close contact with the financial institutions and expect that the posting of salaries will commence before the end of Thursday 22nd August, 2019.

For further information please contact the office of the Accountant General at telephone numbers 468-3901/2.
