Parents not bothered by work-to-rule

THE BARBADOS UNION of Teachers (BUT) is getting pushback from both Ministry of Education, Technology and Innovation (METI) and parents in a controversy which puts primary school students at the centre of an ongoing impasse.

The BUT a few days ago gave an ultimatum to the education ministry to have a meeting with teachers or its members would go on a work-to-rule between 8:45 a.m. to 3 p.m., meaning they would have a hands-off approach to children after school ends.

A release, however, from the ministry refuted claims that it did not meet or communicate with the BUT on issues that affected teachers.

When WEEKEND NATION visited a number of schools yesterday, the consensus among parents was that the work-to-rule did not have any impact on them collecting their charges. (JS)
