The National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) has ordered its members to stay away from work on Thursday and Friday.
The planned two-day national shutdown follows a breakdown in pay negotiations between the island’s largest public sector union and Government.
As a result, the NUPW announced today that it would be calling out its members for “two days of protest and resistance”.
“Public servants have taken the brunt of this Government’s draconian cost – cutting measures and can take it no more. We deserve better,” the union said in a statement announcing its planned action.
