Davis: Entire Public Service Double Dipping
Deputy Prime Minister Philip “Brave” Davis said Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) workers are not the only ones double dipping in the National Insurance Board (NIB) fund.
According to Deputy Prime Minister Philip “Brave” Davis, the entire public service is guilty of it and that this is an issue the government has been closely watching for quite a while and one that needs to be immediately addressed.
Over the past several weeks, BEC union heads and BEC executive management have butted heads over this issue after Executive Chairman Leslie Miller mandated that BEC workers no longer double dip – that is receive sick benefits as well as their full pay checks when out sick.
BEC workers have since threatened to cut power supply to all its consumers if the government does not step in and reverse this decision.corruption, crime, economy, government, incompetence
