ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, July 9, 2014 – GIS: Government will pay the last tranche of back pay to public servants at the end of this month.

This announcement has come from Minister for Economic Development, Trade, Planning and Co-operatives, Hon. Oliver Joseph.

The final tranche will bring the amount the Keith Mitchell Administration has paid out to public servants to Forty Million EC Dollars since coming back into office about eighteen months ago.

“Before the 31st of July the final tranche will be paid – that will bring the total to $40 Million EC Dollars,” announced Minister Joseph.

“Government just came into office, in one year and a half [it] has to find $40 Million Dollars to pay salaries every month – on time.

That is a big big achievement and we are paying it from local resources. So, the $40 Million of the last tranche will be paid before the 31st of July. All the claims are now prepared.”
