As we both have very important jobs to do in representing the best interest of the public service, it is important that we work together in partnership in doing so.
I commend the CSA on the work that they are doing, particularly as it relates to their rewards and incentive program.
As a member of the CSA myself, I encourage staff that have not yet done so, to register to be a part of the organization that continues to work on their behalf.”
CSA President Demarco Williams on commenting said:
“It has taken a tremendous amount of work not only to build the Association but more importantly for Civil Servants to regain confidence in the Association. I would like to applaud my team for their continued support and encourage Civil Servants to be a part of this Great Association because Together we surely can move mountains.
I would also like to Thank the Deputy Governor and her office for continuing to work in collaboration with the Association in the best interest of all Civil Servants. “
