Teachers taking action Monday
Scores of teachers are expected to attend the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union meeting on Monday afternoon.
President Mary Redman told Barbados TODAY that letters had been sent to the Ministry of Education and schools informing them about the meeting which is scheduled for 1 p.m. at the Barbados Workers’ Union headquarters.
She also disclosed that letters had been sent to the permanent secretary in the Ministry of the Civil Service and the chief labour officer apprising them of what had transpired and about the BSTU’s need to have a meeting.
This afternoon, executive members of the trade union held a series of meetings with teachers at Coleridge and Parry, Alleyne School, Christ Church Foundation, Deighton Griffith, The Lodge, Queen’s College, and Combermere School.
Redman said those meetings went well.
Teachers will have the chance to have their questions on the transfer issue answered, seek clarification on anything, and discuss the possible courses of action available to the trade union. They will also be asked to decide the way forward. (DS)
