BUT stages protest
The Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) today served notice that it will not pull back its demands for the Ministry of Education to restore money docked from the pay of about 700 teachers back in May.
BUT President Pedro Shepherd issued the warning as he led members of his executive in a peaceful protest a stone’s throw away from the Ministry of Education.
Shepherd told Barbados TODAY despite repeated attempts by the BUT to have the matter addressed, authorities have continued to ignore the plight of hardworking teachers.
The union is set to resume its protest tomorrow.
