Deputy Geoff Southern has been sacked as Assistant Minister for Social Security.
This follows his call for a vote of no confidence in the States Employment Board (SEB) - which sets the pay for civil servants.
Social Security Minister, Judy Martin asked him to resign but he refused so she says she was forced to dismiss him with immediate effect.
In a statement from Senator Sam Mézec, Leader of Reform Jersey, he says Deputy Geoff Southern has "worked tirelessly to present the States Assembly with proposals to prevent the public sector pay dispute from getting worse and to provide a pathway for meaningful negotiations and the prospect of a fair pay deal".
Teachers in the National Education Union are striking again today in an ongoing row with the SEB over pay.
