The Solomon Islands Public Employees Union has deferred its decision on whether to take strike action over errors in a pay agreement until next week.
Grammatical errors were discovered in the agreement that was signed last week between the government and the union.
Its secretary, Clement Waiwori, says the union didn't read the agreement before signing in as it believed the Attorney General's office wouldn't make mistakes. .
"They were referring to the Solomon Islands Public Employers Union, not Employees Union, that was one of the errors. And the other error was that instead of trade unions and trade union associations it was initialled as trade unions and trade associations. So technically it does not refer to the Solomon Islands Public Employees Union as a party to the agreement."
Mr Waiwori says and that agreement now stands null and void until it is re-typed.
He says a vote on whether to take strike action will be made at the union's AGM, on April the 15th.
