A senior teacher who refused to teach a class at the Alexandra School for an entire term did breach the Public Service Act’s code of conduct.
And according to Chief Personnel Officer Gail Atkins, the teacher’s action warranted a dismissal, once the correct procedures were followed.
Atkins made the revelation yesterday when the Commission of Inquiry into The Alexandra School continued at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex yesterday.
The senior teacher alleged to have committed that breach, Amaida Greaves, is the public relations officer of the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU), which had its members at The Alexandra School withdraw their labour on January 3 this year.
According to Atkins, the decision by the union to start industrial action was a “precipitous” one, since her department did not deal with labour management issues.Please read the full story in today’s WEEKEND NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
