Extra rights, worker categories opened up in CSME

Teachers, artisans, domestic workers are to be formally included among ten categories of certified skilled nationals allowed to be able to work and live indefinitely in all but one of the 15 member countries of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) by year-end.

And in a related development, CARICOM skilled nationals in seven states – Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Haiti and Suriname – will be able to relocate with their spouses, young children and dependent parents.

As signatories to the Protocol on Contingent Rights, a certified skill national worker can receive social benefits afforded the citizens in the host countries.

These historic decisions reached at the July 4 – 6 CARICOM Heads of Government Conference in Jamaica were announced this morning by Ambassador-designate to the region and the Association of Caribbean States David Comissiong during his first news briefing on regional developments within the integration movement.Read More.https://barbadostoday.bb/2018/08/22/extra-rights-worker-categories-opened-up-in-csme/
