Acting Accountant General in the Department of the Treasury, Mr. Ickford Roberts today announced that Public Servants have begun receiving salaries for the month of July 2021.

He said that due to a processing delay, the remaining salaries, which are at the various commercial banks will be paid by the next business day (Wednesday). 

The Treasury official noted that while the country’s revenues continue to experience major decline, due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, the Government assures Public Servants that all will be done to meet monthly payments of salaries, wages, and pensions in a timely manner.

  1. And the detractors say the government has done little to assist people during the pandemic.

    Ah just lef nearga dey ah bay see.

  2. Gaston big up ya damn self. It’s been over a year and you continue to pay public sector workers in a more timely fashion than Lovell did under better times. I would not have wanted UPP to be in power at a time like this because croppo woulda smoke arwe pipe.

  3. Those persons work for their salaries. They are supposed to be damn well paid and be paid on time. Government revenue is short,you say. Perhaps if you the purse holders. Were not spending like you high on weed and or rum. There would be some monies left in that purse to pay the people on time,monthly.
    The Revenues were falling before the Covid Pandemic. What the Pandemic known as Covid-19 did. It just exposed the Emperor(Gaston Browne) and his nakedness.

  4. Notice everyone had to take a pay cut but not one member of govt took one. All they do is bleed we the people continuously.

    Then you have the Nigel Christian issue. Not one person responsible for his execution style murder because he found out what was happening behind the “fake” signatures at the Port. That’s right the murderers have not been brought to justice because govt members and Port person involved in the coverup.

    That’s the kind of govt we have.

    • Bitch, would you like government workers to get a pay cut? You sound sick. The government is the biggest employer and as we know there’s been major retrenchment in the private sector thanks to the pandemic. Would you like to see a fallout in BOTH the private and public sector? It’s unfortunate what happened to Nigel but what does it have to do with the story? And since ya rasshole know the ins and outs of the case I hope you have taken this info to the police and then you can definitely say they have done nothing with the info provided but aryu act as if online posts can bring people to justice. Tired ah aryu.

  5. JUST SAYING you and all your other ALP propagandists are absolutely amazing. Is paying public servants the salary that they have worked for providing assistance in a pandemic? Do you want an example of sensible and serious assistance? The government of Grenada has borrowed $36 million from the Caribbean Development Bank to assist the unemployed and cultural workers. That is what you call assistance in a pandemic. You, FROM THE SIDELINE, ERIC (THE RED), PETE, CARSON B and PHILLIP G need to get your heads examined since you are all woefully delusional.

  6. What happened to the contractors? I have kids and over a year I can’t get paid

  7. I’ve never seen such nonsense. This gvt’ thives and the thought that they’re doing the people of this country a favor and the fact of the matter is, it’s the citizens that are doing you the favor. We elect people to carry the mantle of running the country and in return our taxes pay and house you, but nuh Gaston and he sheep act like its is us that has to grabble at their feet and mercy for doing their job.

  8. This useless ALP government needs to be “committed” to reducing the public sector wage bill.

  9. But yet you allowed Chet Greene to travel to the Olympics for what is he running , swimming, dancing or he looking woman … he was patiently waiting to get on a plane, i only can imagine how tuff it was for him during the pandemic when he couldn’t travel every other day for foreign affairs lol what a useless minister… the government can find ways to save money and travelling up and down is one , the pandemic could have tell them that when all of them couldn’t travel go no where.. from what my understanding is chet green payout from treasury for each trip is about $15-$20,000 per trip and he only travels first class … all i can say is wow , creative enrichment…

  11. This is Shit to the stinkiest. Police must do all kind a work to their best but can’t get pay month end. Processing problem for people money to be posted (I don’t believe it) but no processing problem to raffle $5000.00 for eight weeks to get vaccinated. That’s $40,000.00 if my calculation is right. What an advantage. My contributions were taken out for Social Security and now I am seventy years I can’t get what is mine on time. Today is 31.7.21and no SS pension for June yet and Gaston put his dam mouth in everything else except something on the pensioners behalf. My God, what are Fu nam SNAIL and Gaston gone pan holiday. A real real trouble them a look for in a Antigua no. Me a warn them,vthe spirit of God does not always thrive with man.
