Choops|Cops angry over CoP salary!


Choops Man!

President of the Police Social and Welfare Association Sgt Anand Ramesar was yesterday informed by the majority of his membership that they are demoralised, dissatisfied, disgruntled, and feel betrayed that they continue to receive the same salaries since 2007.

He added the officers are also questioning the decision of Government to offer a salary and compensation package amounting to $2.5 million a year for new Police Commissioner Dwayne Gibbs.

Do you think that anyone will be upset with the local police officers whom are upset about the salary and perks that new police commissioner and his Canadian deputy commissioner will receive? I am not and I am very concerned that there appears to be one set of salaries for locals and another for foreigners employed in the same positions that were once and currently held by locals.

How is it that the foreign deputy commissioner could be receiving pay that is several times the amount received by locals in the same position? Some have argued that the foreigners from Canada must receive a pay structure that is similar to what is received from their country of origin... I disagree!

The pay for the Commissioner and deputy commissioners should be fixed. When the jobs were advertised the salary structure should have been advertised with the positions. Of course there should be perks and lodging accommodations could have been part of the package but the salary should be the same for the local and foreign employees holding the same positions. If they did not like the salaries then they should not apply for the positions.

How would you like to work in a company where a new employee comes in and earns $100,000 per month while you earn $24,000 for doing the same job? Would that encourage you to be all that you can be? Sorry that was an ad for the US army. The bottom line is would you be encouraged to perform at your best knowing that someone else who may not be up to task receives more pay than you do?

This will be a very contentious issue for months and probably years to come.
