Protesting Trinidad and Tobago Postal Workers this morning demanded an increase for the period 2008-2009, outside of the office of the Chief Personnel Officer, in Port-of-Spain.
President of the TT Postal Workers Union, Reginald Chrichlow led his members, arguing that they are dissatisfied with the slow pace of wage negotiations, between the union, TTPOST’s Management and Chief Personnel Officer, Stephanie Lewis.
Chrichlow said an 18.5 % increase was recommended during the wage negotiation discussion held with TTPOST’s management.

Meanwhile, First Vice President of the Trinidad and Tobago Postal Workers Union, Martin Charles said it is a sad day when postal workers have to protest to receive an increase in salaries.
He said the basic salary of a postal worker is $4,500 per month and this has not been increased since 2009.
