STEP DOWN, Mr Minister!
That is the strong suggestion coming from the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT), which met for several hours with more than 600 of its members at its Merryhill, St Michael headquarters yesterday morning.
The call, which got lots of applause from members, came as president Pedro Shepherd was addressing the open-air meeting and expanding on the need for Jones to step down during an interview with reporters afterwards.
Shepherd said he believed that Jones is “tired with the ministry” he has been carrying for the last eight years, and that it was particularly evident in the correspondence from the minister in response to the union’s call for a meeting with him on or before Wednesday (April 27).
