No raise since 2009
TEACHERS WANT A 12 per cent increase.
President of the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT), Pedro Shepherd, said it was more than enough time for them to receive a hike, having not had one since 2009.
He told the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday that last Friday, the third meeting on pay in over a year was held, with the negotiating charge led by the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados.
The teachers’ fight comes at a time when the National Union of Public Workers is seeking a 23 per cent pay increase for its members. (TG)
