WHAT IS THE DISPUTE?
That was the question from Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Senator Harry Husbands, as he told the Senate yesterday the ministry had met several times with officials of the two teachers’ unions over the past several months.
Husbands, a former president of the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) and executive director of the Barbados Employers’ Confederation (BEC), said he was yet to be informed of the dispute between the BUT and the ministry.
“As far as I am concerned, and using my considerable experience, tell me what is the dispute? The BUT, the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU) and we in the Ministry of Education, in the last two months, we have met with them on more occasions than at any other time that I was there. (GE)
