Audley Shaw, says a working group comprising members of the Government and unions representing civil servants is being established to facilitate further discussions on the pension reform programme.He made the announcement during Thursday’s (September 14) joint Government of Jamaica/International Monetary Fund (IMF) press conference for the second review under the Precautionary Stand-by Arrangement, at the Office of the Prime Minister.Mr. Shaw said the group will explore issues arising in relation to the programme’s administration, with a view to arriving at a consensus at how best these can be addressed.The programme will be anchored on the Pensions (Public Service) Act 2017 and the Constitution (Amendment) (Establishment Fund) (Payment of Pensions) Act 2017 which were passed in the House of Representatives earlier this year, but are still being debated in the Senate.“I am committed, along with State Minister, Hon. Rudyard Spencer, to meet with the unions so that we can explain things more carefully…(and) work together to thrash out whatever concerns they have in terms of the administration of the programme… even after the Bills are passed,” Mr. Shaw said.The Pensions (Public Service) Act 2017 will establish a defined benefit contributory scheme, which will require all pensionable officers to contribute five per cent of salary.   It also provides for the establishment of a segregated fund for contributions and gradual increase in the retirement age to 65.The Constitution (Amendment) (Established Fund) (Payment of Pensions) Act 2017 will amend the Constitution to facilitate the payment of pensions, gratuities and allowances out of the pension fund.Pension reform, which was prioritized under Jamaica’s four-year Extended Fund Facility that concluded in October 2016, remains a structural benchmark under the three-year successor Precautionary Stand-by Arrangement.

He can get back into the stadium.”“If you affect their team – these fans love their team – the fans, his friends, are going to turn on him,” he added.“If you start playing games behind closed doors and deducting points, then the problem is inside themselves. They are going to deal with it themselves.”“86 percent is quite high, to be honest – I wouldn’t have said 86,” he commented about the number of people that have seen a racist act in English football.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“I would have said more in the 40s but I put it down to ignorance more than anything else.”“I feel like it is getting worse but I’m not going to blame the English leagues,” he added.“I would blame the FA and UEFA because I don’t feel like they’re strict enough when it happens.”“Racism can be stopped in football stadiums but it all depends on what the FA and UEFA want to do about it,” he continued.“If they want to hammer down on it next season, it could take five or 10 years [to eradicate].”“If they keep thinking of other solutions rather than just hitting it straight on the head, then it could take generations,” Antonio concluded.Game of two halves today.
