Waiting on Jones
TIRED OF UNWARRANTED criticisms, the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) wants a face-to-face meeting with Minister of Education Ronald Jones.
And president Pedro Shepherd has warned that if that meeting does not materialise no later than Wednesday, then industrial action will swing into action immediately.
The Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) also reiterated its call for the expulsion of the 14-year-old Ellerslie School student who was involved in an altercation with a teacher.
Following meetings with their membership yesterday, the two unions said they felt betrayed and belittled about a string of events that have been confronting teachers over the past several weeks. (LK)
