After several months of intense negotiations, the Jamaica Police Federation has finally agreed to accept the latest wage proposal from the government.
At a meeting held on Thursday gone, the delegates of the Federation voted to accept the compensation review offer.
Several technical challenges plagued the meeting and according to reports there was some level of confusion among the rank-and-file members of the constabulary moments after the votes were cast.
There were mainly two issues of contention, which was whether to accept housing in or housing out of basic salary or whether they should accept or reject the latest offer.
86% voted to accept the offer while 60% of delegates voted to accept the housing in of basic salary according to reports from Jamaica.
