PUBLIC Services Association (PSA) president Watson Duke has been accused of acting irresponsibly and causing panic among public servants.
Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister Stuart Young said yesterday that notwithstanding the financial difficulties it faced, Government was committed to maintaining jobs.
“For Mr Watson Duke to interpret that (as lay-offs) and then go into this fear-mongering mode is very irresponsible. That is not at all what the Prime Minister was indicating. We are into job preservation...But (Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley) was putting it in the context of the difficulties we face,” he said during the post-Cabinet press briefing at the Diplomatic Centre, St Ann's.
