BUT meeting has classes in limbo

PARENTS REMAINED in a panic late last night unsure whether to send their children to school this morning in light of a mass meeting of teachers.

From 9 a.m. today the 2 000-strong Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT), which represents both primary and secondary school teachers, has summoned a meeting at its Merryhill, St Michael headquarters.

There has been no word from the Ministry of Education about its effect on the well-being of the 42 000 nursery, primary and secondary students.

In announcing the meeting on Wednesday evening, BUT president Pedro Shepherd said the union had issues to discuss with the teachers but he did not “think the issues can last us for the entire day”.  (HLE)
