Montserrat’s civil servants plan public protest for pay increase tomorrow

Public servants in Monserrat have been called to engage in a public demonstration in protest of the non-commitment of the government to approve a salary increase.
President of the Montserrat Civil Service Association (MCSA) Nyota N.C. Mulcare in a letter to members on Tuesday, December 6, 2022, called on its membership to start go-slow action in protest of the non-commitment of the government to approve a pay increase.

In a letter to the members on Tuesday, President of the MCSA Nyota Mulcare encouraged “full participation so that we can make a great impact.”

According to Discover Monserrat in a publication on December 6, 2022, the last salary increases for civil servants in Montserrat took effect April 1, 2017.

10% salary increase requested

Mulcare said in the notice that their most recent request to government was for a 10% salary increase to take effect April 1, 2023. As no firm commitment has been received, the association is calling on all its members to participate in the agreed work actions over the coming days.

On Tuesday civil servants were asked to “Turn the volume off on the office phones and allow all calls to ring out” and “go slow in performing your duties.”

Today, Wednesday, December 7, 2022, members were encouraged to “Turn the volume off on the office phones and allow all calls to ring out” and “go slow in performing your duties. Staff to report sick for duty.”

Tomorrow, Thursday, December 8, 2022, however, the strike steps up with a public demonstration.

Public servants have been asked to “Dress in full black; assemble at the Governor’s Office at 9:45am (placards will be provided), sickout action should continue.”

According to Discover Monserrat, since last Thursday, the association called a meeting of its membership to update them on their request for salary increases and the actions they would take if an agreement were not forthcoming.
