Stalemate still in Alexandra dispute
After a four and a half hour meeting between Minister of Education Ronald Jones and the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) today, the issue remains at a stalemate.
Jones told the Press that on Monday he will be meeting with principal of the school Jeff Broomes, as well as the Barbados Association of Principals of Secondary Schools (BAPPSS) and the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW)
He also said the issue could go beyond him to include other Cabinet ministers who could assist in resolving this dispute.
Jones admitted this was his toughest challenge since taking up the position as Minister of Education.
Alexandra School teachers will be off the job on Monday again, but it is unclear as to whether there will be an out strike on Tuesday.
