CLAIMING A possible infringement of freedoms and “disrespect”, the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) is planning to “stoutly” defend one of its members.
In what is shaping up to be the second showdown with the Ministry of Education over a teacher from Combermere school in recent months, president Mary Redman said the union is not planning on taking the disciplinary charges brought against Reverend Charles Morris by the ministry lightly.
“We are monitoring very carefully this situation as it relates to Reverend Morris. He is our long standing member and in true BSTU fashion we will stoutly defend him and secure his rights in any upcoming process, not only for him personally but for all other teachers and public officers.
“[Senior public officers and members of the Government] must ask themselves who stands most to lose in the eyes of the public in a situation like this and be guided accordingly,” Redman.
