THE Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) is concerned that not enough is being done to fill a major void in the teaching system, which it says is only growing larger.
After a Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) media conference at BUT headquarters, Merryhill, Welches, St Michael, on Saturday, BUT president Sean Spencer pointed to the December 19, 2019 edition of The Official Gazette.
“If one examines the Gazette, one would recognise that there are senior administrative posts to be filled. As middle management is promoted, though not exclusively, their posts become vacant in turn and junior appointed officers will be promoted.
“Ultimately, temporary employees will be appointed to the newly vacated established posts. Therefore, given the volume of retirements, there should be a number of established posts in the service to be accessed,” he said. (CA)
