BUT: Speak out


Share post:

PRESIDENT of the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT), Pedro Shepherd, is encouraging members to speak up on issues affecting them at schools though they may fear victimisation.

Shepherd stressed that though teachers were barred from speaking to the Press, they needed to use the union more to resolve any challenges they experienced.
