OMINICA CIVIL SERVICE ASSOCIATION
The& following is a full text of a letter sent out by the .Dominica
Civil Service Association to the three parties contesting the forthcoming
General Elections. Only one of the three parties, the.-Dominica Freedom
Party, has responded so far. No, response has been received from the
Dominica Labour Party or the Progressive Labour Party -The letters are.
reproduced ,for the information and guidance of civil servants and the
electorate in general., "
C.S.A. letter to all Parties 17th February,.1975
Sir/Madam, The dissolution of the House of Assembly. on Thursday 135th Febru-
ary, -1975 creates a situation in which every citizen and every respon-
sible organisation must concern 'itself With the very important "matter
of determining the destiny, of the State and Qof selecting individuals to
form the parliament and government of the country.
As the principal body in Dominica representing the interest of
public officers, the Doininica Civil Service Association has a role to
play in guiding its members in tlis most important matter,
in. an effort to discharge this, 'espotsibility in the best inter-
est, of the pub.ic service -and the State, the C.S.A., is requesting that
you state your position and-that of your party6n the following matters
which are of primary importance to the Civil Service Association:
S-1) What, is your party',s position on the ,question of Salaries Revision
S for civil servants and the maintaiiiance of dialogue between Govern-
ment and the Association on, this .matter?
_(2) 'What ia your party s.position on the rescinding of the Civil

S service into, three categories for purposes of engaging.:in political
activity at Local- and Central Goverinnent.-level? :(.ee viBwp6int

(4) ~Vhat is your party b position on the 'Agency Shop' within the

Your reaction or lack of reaction to -the questions posed 'ih this
Letter will be published for the benefit of. the public service and the
electorate in general, i
Your response Twill also influence the. advice which the Association
will give its members at its Annual General Meeting on the 28th of

In reply to your letter dated-17th February, 1975 we have the
following comments to make:.
1.. We have constantly suggested: that a permanent Cost of Living Index
be kept -- kept correctly and efficiently, and salaries reviewed in ac-
Scordance, with information obtained from the index. (con-td, i.)

Friday March 7. a975 T HE ST AR -A Page Three
DOM lIA CIVIL SERVICE ASSOCIATION (fr.p.2) Consideration would have to
be given, however, to Government's ability to pay the recommended increases;
bearing in mind, that as in all industrial relations, constant dialogue
must be maintained on both sides
2. We stand committed to rescind the Civil Service Act, and to provide our
own General Orders in keeping with the-present nedds of the State.
3. We recognize in principle, that the Civil Servant is first .and fore-
'most a CITIZEN of the State, and therefore his right to participation in
the meaningful development of the State cannot be denied. The matter of
classification for political activity will therefore be given'serious.
4. We appreciate, that non-members of the Civil Service Association gain by
the efforts of the Civil Service Association,. But we do not agree with the
establishment of an. "agency shop" since we believe ttere should be freedom
to associate or not, aand to pay- for such-association, -as the individual
5. We believe that the successful development of our country depends on
the productive relationship between Government and the Civil Srvice. We
also believe that efficient service- to the community should'always be the
dominant element affecting the Belationship between Government and the
6. We are not satisfied with the present composition of that important body,
consisting as it does of political activists.. We feel, that the Public
Service Commission by its vey nature, should be composed of. knowledgeable
people of proven impartiality and competence in such fields as, civil service,
-and. industrial relations among.others.
/. The Dominica Freedom Party conddmas attacks `on civil servants by minis-
ters in the House of Assembly.or or political platforms for' three main
1. It is against the. principles of the Parliamentary system, which
2 holds the Minister responsible for the decisions of Cabinet.
2 Because civil servants are debarred. from defending themselves
against such attacks., and
3. It brings the: service into disrepute and prevents a healthy and
loyal relationship between employer and employee,
.We .wish to emphasis that the opinions expressed above have been held
since the inauguration of the Party in 1968.
/ Yours truly,
S_ ._ (Sgd).. Eugenia M. Charles
TAKE WARNING R EM E M-B E R
PFellow Dominicans, quite a. few people are now going around the country
begging you to vote for them. They will promise any, and everything., know-
ing full well-that they will not be able.to keep one-tenth of their promises,
if any at. all
Remember, when you see Patrick John's 'blown-up picture on display that
he is a Shoe Labour Party man.up to the 'last eyehole of the tennis shoe..
Remember, at the last general elections the Labour Party, symbol the Shoe,
with E.O.LeBlane as leader, 'promised us that by now we would be much better
off, plenty of jobs with good pay, more schools, more: and better roads and
many many other things. Can you remember all the -promiseb that the Labour
Shoe arty ipa; five years ago?
Remember, ask yourselves., after fifteen years in.power what has become
of all -these promises, in what condition is: Bominica in today? Remember,
at the.la.st general election did he tell you that if you voted Labour your
water rate in the country districts would be raised from.J2.40 a year to
$34 and up a year? Reriber, did he tell you that if you voted for his
party he would increase the -number of constituencies from eleven to twenty-
one, an added burden on the already hard-pressed taxpayer? Remember,
didn't he deport Sister Rose who was doing dedicated work at the Infirmary,
promising that his government would train our own local people to take over,
and improve the conditions of the Iifirmary and its inmates -- what became
of that promise? (concluded page 8)

for each other and our community as a

involve. ourselves in our politics,
