Share post:

Tantamount to industrial action.
That is how Minister of Education Ronald Jones has described the meetings on the Alexandra affair being held by the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU), which go into the second day today.
Jones said the BSTU “can’t just continue saying you’re having a meeting”.
“The teachers are the employees of the state, and even though the ministry over time has facilitated meetings of any of the teachers’ organisations – APPS, BAPPS, BSTU, BUT . . . calling something a meeting and having your members at it is the same thing as an industrial action.
