THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION has fired another salvo in the ongoing row with the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU).
Once again, it has ordered principals of secondary schools to record the names of teachers who left to attend yesterday’s union meeting at the Barbados Workers’ Union headquarters.
In a swift response, BSTU president Mary Redman disputed the first paragraph of the correspondence which said the ministry had informed the BSTU that holding the 1 p.m. meeting was not supported, Redman said the union had received no such correspondence.
“We received nothing, neither phone call nor correspondence from the Ministry of Education, as is claimed in the first paragraph. So lemme see them touch anybody,” she declared. (HLE)
