Government’s Productivity Consultant Parry Bellot has said “I don’t know what is there to retract” regarding his recent claim that 80% of public servants are unproductive and a demand by the Public Service Union to apologize for the said statement. Bellot who made the much criticized statements at a press conference earlier this month said however that the Union representing employees has gone overboard with the statement.He said he has not received any order by his employee for any retraction. “I gave my opinion. In my report to government, there is no mention about percentage. I was asked the question at a press conference from a keen reporter and gave my personal assessment. I stressed that there are some very good public servants but overall a high percentage are not as productive as they should be. A lot of them are just not doing what they are supposed to be doing. But a lot of them are not performing because it’s not their fault. Either their equipment is not working as it should, their resources are limited…” he said.Bellot said everybody must understand that the public service productivity is very low.“The Union has gone overboard in their reaction. The point is productivity is low and something must be done about it,” he added.Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said at a press conference last week that he would not accept that 80% of public servants are unproductive without any empirical data to corroborate the claim.
