TEACHERS REPRESENTED by the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) will be reporting for their new assignments tomorrow.
Coming out of a meeting at the BUT headquarters yesterday with teachers who raised concerns about their transfers to The Alexandra School effective January 1, president Pedro Shepherd said the union had advised members to report for duty and “bring to its attention any challenges which they might be faced with during the transition period”.
This is despite the seven areas of concerns raised by members, including legality, timing of transfers, lateness of the transfer notice and the lack of discussion prior to the issuing of the transfer letters.
“The Barbados Union of Teachers noted that there was no consultation on the transfers and this was not in keeping  with the agreement we have with the Ministry of Education re transfers of teachers, which would allow one term for principals and six weeks  for teachers.
