first_imgParry Bellot during his press conference on 15th January, 2012.Government’s productivity consultant Parry Bellot who suggested at a press conference on January 25th, 2012 that 80% of public officers were unproductive has issued an apology to that organization.In a letter dated March 8th, 2012, Bellot communicated to the Union that he thought it best to retract his statement “in the interest of moving forward.He underscores in his letter that the statement was made based on his personal assessment and not on any scientific analysis.The letter which is addressed to the president, general secretary and membership states as follows;“Gentlemen:As promised at our meeting today which included your Executive, I am pleased to put in writing the following:I hereby, after much thought and in the interest of moving forward, formally retract my statement (expressed as a personal opinion in reply to a question at my press conference on the 25th Jan, 2012) that in my rough estimation, the public service works at about 20% efficiency. I understand that this caused some hurt among your membership, especially as it was not based on any scientific analysis, merely my own opinion based on several years personal assessment.In retrospect, it probably would have been best, given the importance of the subject and the many persons impacted, NOT to have even suggested that personal opinion. For that I apologize.As indicated at our very friendly meeting (and in previous discussions) I look forward to us working together to improve productivity throughout our society, and specifically to help the PSU be able to fully justify in the not too distant future, substantial increases in pay because of equivalent increases in productivity that is then appreciated by Dominica and Dominicans generally.I thank you for your continued cooperation.Sincerely, P.R.
