BUT not backing away
THE BARBADOS UNION OF TEACHERS (BUT) is not in any way threatened by the Ministry of Education.
With that said, president Pedro Shepherd made it clear yesterday the BUT remained “resolute in what it has to do”.
“I am not intimidated, my members are not intimidated. We might have been threatened, but we do not feel threatened. And shortly those temporary unappointed teachers, whom they [will] attempt to drive fear into . . . are going to be called and we are going to explain to them that there is no need to fear,” Shepherd said.
Teachers from Alma Parris and Parkinson Memorial secondary schools have been meeting at BUT headquarters since Tuesday to try to get protracted matters at both schools resolved. The meetings were confined to the first part of the day up to Wednesday, but extended to the full day yesterday and the same will happen again today.
