Even as registrar of CXC, Glenroy Cumberbatch, said last week that the council would not be entertaining the payment of teachers, president of the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union, Mary Redman, said the union would not be letting up and Cumberbatch would have to engage the teachers’ unions throughout the region, through the CUT.
