This is according to Prime Minister, Moses Nagamootoo who revealed that with the increase, the REOs will now be earning just about $600,000 per month.
This figure would include any benefits usually extended to REOs. It was revealed that at present, REOs earn just over $292,000.
With the increase, the Officers will now receive a duty allowance of $70,000 – which is not taxable. Additional changes include a three-year contract instead of two years while all other benefits are standardized to public service.
