BSTU action could spread


Share post:

An emergency general meeting called by the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) could affect operations at all older secondary schools, some of the newer ones, the Barbados Community College and the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic today.
The 1 p.m. meeting at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre has been called to rally support for teachers at the Alexandra School, who are now into their third day of industrial action to protest protracted unresolved issues with controversial principal Jeff Broomes dating back to 2002.
President Mary Redman said the next step in this action would be to pull members from other schools if demands for the separation of Broomes from the school were not met.
President of the Barbados Association of Principals of Public Secondary Schools Winston Crichlow told the WEEKEND NATION the impact on schools would depend on the level of support the BSTU was able to garner from its members and the length of time services were withheld.
