KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Northern Caribbean University (NCU) has announced a 10-per cent salary cut for all its employees effective June 1, 2020 in response to reduced revenue inflows caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The university said further salary reduction is pending if the institution’s financial position does not improve to meet future payments.
NCU president, Dr Lincoln Edwards made the announcement to workers during a virtual meeting on Monday.
Edwards said the university was heading in the right direction fiscally when COVID came and things changed.
The NCU president also disclosed that the advent of the pandemic had dried up sources of income for many students through the Colporteur ministry or working abroad.
