Unions to meet with teachers
TEACHERS FROM PRIMARY and secondary schools should be away from the classrooms tomorrow afternoon.
That will depend on how they respond to a call from both the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) and the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) to attend separate meetings each starting at 1:30 p.m.
Neither the BUT nor the BSTU indicated that their synchronised meetings were in any way coinciding with the industrial action being taken by the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) in its dispute with Government.
The NUPW has promised widespread action, including support from other unions, to get its president, Akanni McDowall, back into a higher acting position of health planner officer he held. (ES)
