NO BSTU let-up


Share post:

THE BARBADOS Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) will be relentless in ridding schools of the “vexing” issue of violence.

The promise came from first vice-president of the union, Erskine Padmore, during an address at the May Day celebrations at Brownes Beach yesterday.

“We will continue to do so even if the public, the Press or politicians do not rush to our defence. When violence is meted out to the teacher, or student for that matter, the relationship is fractured and it then becomes awkward for the factions to share a similar space.

“We maintain and remind, however, that the provision of a safe and healthy workplace is the duty of the employer and therefore, the Ministry of Education has a responsibility to teachers too as workers; a responsibility to provide a safe working environment in which we can perform our duties free from threats to our persons,” Padmore said.  (YB)
