BVIAA employees to receive reimbursement for COVID pay cut

BVIAA employees to receive reimbursement for COVID pay cut

Employees of the BVI Airport Authority (BVIAA) will be reimbursed for monies cut from their salaries during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic according to Premier Andrew A. Fahie.

The Premier made the announcement yesterday, Friday April 22, 2022, during a press conference on matters in the territory.

“ I wish to advise employees of the BVI Airports Authority that payments of the monies relative to the 25 percent pay cut that they took during the earlier months of the pandemic will commence from 30 April, 2022.”

He said BVIAA employees should begin receiving the monies in their upcoming paychecks. By 30 May, 2022 all the payments should be reimbursed.

The Premier made the announcement yesterday, Friday April 22, 2022, during a press conference on matters in the territory.

Pay cuts during COVID-19 period

Premier Fahie reminded that During the heightened period of COVID-19, the BVIAA had asked employees to take a 25 per cent pay cut so the Authority could continue to function, seeing there was no significant economic activity being generated at the time due to significantly reduced traffic at the airport arising from the border closures.

“This was clearly a great sacrifice by the BVIAA employees, and we are thankful to them for making this sacrifice.”

Premier Fahie announced that I t two of the long outstanding increments due to the staff of the BVIAA will also be paid during the aforementioned period.

“As the country’s economy continues to grow, the people who made the sacrifice to get us where we are now must be recognized in a timely manner, because we are in this together,” he added.
