Alexandra talks continue

Minister of Education Ronald Jones is hoping to bring all the players involved in the Alexandra School dispute together by Wednesday.
Speaking to the Press after a near three-hour meeting today with principal Jeff Broomes and his representatives from the National Union of Public Workers, the Barbados Association of Principals of Public Secondary Schools and other senior officials in the Ministry of Education said Wednesday was his “outer limit” in which to get the different sides together.
Representatives from all three groups reported productive talks and expressed the desire to bring the impasse, which has seen Alexandra teachers off the job for nine consecutive days, to an end.
Plans to bring out the wider membership of the Barbados Secondary Teachers’s Union (BSTU) out for the second time tomorrow have been suspended to allow the talks with Jones to continue. (YB)
