Ministry, BSTU to meet

THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION and the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) seem headed for the first major showdown for the school year.
It is understood that the two parties are to meet on Thursday at 2 p.m. at the ministry to discuss an issue at Combermere School over which students are reportedly threatening to launch a protest.
Four teachers, three of whom are former Combermerians, are said to be involved in the matter and up until recently, all four would have been temporary teachers.
One was relieved of duties on two occasions in the last nine months, with last week being the more recent. Two of the affected teachers are members of the BSTU.
BSTU president Mary Redman would only confirm that a meeting was scheduled but refused to divulge the nature of the latest complaint.
