DPM Hyde Comments on JUNT
And the Joint Union Negotiating Team isn’t too happy with the Government at the moment. Union leaders say they’ve been trying to meet with Government representatives but they’ve been given the runarounds. So today, reporters asked Deputy Prime Minister Cordel Hyde about it. He is the government’s most senior representative on its negotiating team. Here is how he responded.
Cordel Hyde, Minister of Natural Resources: “We will never abandon that relationship, that engagement, that medium where we are able to discuss issues that affect the government and affect the public officers and teachers. I think a meeting is scheduled pretty shortly, pretty soon and no doubt it will be very interesting, very excited and very animated discussions and we will look forward to them.”
