BSTU ‘will not budge’
It’s still all about separation for the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU).
President of the BSTU, Mary-Anne Redman yesterday informed a commission of inquiry that the union had not and would not budge from it’s position of wanting Alexandra School principal Jeff Broomes separated from the St Peter school.
“Mr Broomes is a dictator. A despot,” she told the commission. “There is too much that has gone on. Too much has come out, even during this Inquiry. There will never be a harmonious situation with Mr Broomes at the school,” she told commissioner retired high court judge Frederick Waterman.
“Given the cases we have had to fight. Giving what I know what this has done, it can’t work. We have cases of diabetes, of hypertension, of ulcerated stomachs among our membership and [this] does not compare to other schools where we have similar numbers at a school,” the president asserted.
