FOR THE SECOND consecutive year, teachers at Alexandra School who are represented by the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) will not be reporting for work at the start of the Hilary term.
They are expected to be joined by all other teachers who have been issued transfer letters as part of the shake-up at the St Peter school, which saw close to 20 teachers, including embattled principal Jeff Broomes and deputy Beverley Neblett-Lashley, being reassigned to different schools.
While stressing that no industrial action was being taken, BSTU president Mary Redman told the DAILY NATION yesterday that the teachers were invited to the union’s Belleville, St Michael headquarters for a meeting at 9:30 a.m. this morning.
Redman has already indicated that at least three teachers, who are covered under a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Education and the International Labour Organization Convention 135, will be returning to Alexandra School.
