Teachers waiting on Combermere update
TEACHERS AT THE Combermere School are no longer prepared to compromise.
Speaking ahead of today’s 3 p.m. with the Ministry of Education, president of the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) Mary Redman hinted that some action is likely to follow if the outcome of the meeting is not satisfactory to members.
The school has been closed since mid-November so that the root to the environmental issues, which have been causing teachers and students to fall ill, can be found.
Redman was addressing a joint meeting with the BSTU and the Barbados Union of Teachers at Solidarity House this morning.
It was the first time the unions met in such a forum since 2005, when the BSTU joined forces with the BUT to represent teachers at the now closed Louis Lynch Secondary School who were falling ill because of environmental issues. (YB)
