President of the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union, Mary Redman, tonight described discussions between her and Chief Personnel Officer Gail Atkins as “productive”.
After three and a half hours of talks at the Ministry of the Civil Service on Collymore Rock, she and a delegation comprising teachers affected by the transfer and executive members emerged.
“We had a good meeting and things are at a sensitive stage so I really can’t go into any further details right now but let’s say we had a productive meeting,” Redman said.
The trade union leader told the press she had to wait and see if there would be another meeting.
The BSTU had threatened industrial action if they failed to get a meeting with the CPO or another authority that could answer their questions. (DS)
