The Prison, Police and Fire Association recently issued threats to take action against the payment proposals concerning their back pay.
Yesterday The Minister of Labor Jennifer Baptiste Primus apologized for a lack of consultation, with labor bodies and the protective services, before the mid-year budget review was read in Parliament by the Finance Minister.
She made the apology as she was responding to questions about threats made by the various arms of the protective services.
The Minister also addressed the issue of the one million dollar compensation for slain police officers.
On the issue of the $1 million for relatives of slain police offers, it was shared that a legal process needed to take place before this could happen.
However the Minister did give the assurance that despite the length of time money would be paid retroactively from the day the last administration made the announcement for the payment.
She also stated that the money was not for all arms of the protective services rather it was only for the police officers.
