Pay or Else


Share post:

IT COULD VERY WELL be a November to remember if the Ministry of Education does not restore the docked pay of teachers by the end of this month.

That was made clear yesterday by president of the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT), Pedro Shepherd, who warned of possible industrial action if the money was not repaid.

In June the pay of hundreds of teachers, including Shepherd’s, was docked after they had attended two BUT meetings in April and May during school hours.

And while yesterday’s three-hour meeting with its membership had a poor turnout due to what he described as “intimidatory tactics” by the ministry, a stern-looking Shepherd cautioned that if the money docked was not reflected in this month’s salaries, action would follow. (RB)
