The Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) has started a countdown to December 31.
President Pedro Shepherd told the DAILY NATION yesterday it was the absolute deadline the union was giving the Ministry of Education to get back to them with some definitive plans relating to Parkinson Memorial and Alma Parris secondary schools.
Some of the overlapping issues at the two schools involve time-tabling, curriculum, lack of verbal communication, staff morale and unilateral decision-making by the principals.
Shepherd has not said what the likely consequences will be, but stressed “it will be significant”. Reliable sources have indicated that the BUT will have support in this particular fight from at least one other union.
