Teachers’ jobs safe, for now
The president of the Barbados Union of Teachers, BUT, is assuring educators that their jobs are safe, for now.
The assurance was given this morning at a two-hour meeting with the BUT membership at the Barbados Workers Union headquarters.
BUT president Pedro Shepherd has put on the table a number proposals which the union wants Government to consider before it sends home more than 3,000 public servants starting from January 15.
Shepherd has called for schools to be zoned, boards merged and the free bus fares programme for school children to be discontinued.
