Change of heart
There is trouble brewing in the Barbados Secondary Teacher’s Union (BSTU).
Outspoken president Mary Redman sent in her resignation on October 31 by email to general secretary Andrew Brathwaite and first vice-president Erskine Padmore, but then withdrew it a week later.
Following that, Sunday Sun investigations revealed a wave of other resignations late last week, including Brathwaite, Padmore, second vice-president Carlos Merritt, third vice-president Reverend Charles Morris, treasurer Chris Olliver, and assistant general secretary Monica Harewood.
In the original document, Redman, a teacher at The Lodge School, cited an ongoing medical condition aggravated by the nature of the work she did on behalf of the union, as the reason for leaving the post she has held the last ten years. (BA)
