PSA president concerned about expenditure cuts

The governmet has issued an order to all ministries and state sector entities, to cut expenditure by 7 percent, improve effecicency and innovation and reduce wastage. 

But the Prime Minister's announcement seems to have struck a nerve for the labour movement. 

This morning the PSA and NATUC say although the PM said the new measures do not mean workers will lose jobs, the unions are still concerned.
