Vendors at Grantley Adams Memorial School breathed a sigh of relief on Wednesday after learning that a resolution to the impasse between them and the school’s management was on the horizon.

Alistair Alexander, president of the Barbados Association of Retailers, Vendors and Entrepreneurs (BARVEN), met with them at lunchtime and assured them the issue had been resolved.

This after Prime Minister Mia Mottley told this newspaper on Tuesday there was a place at the school for both the canteen operator and the vendors, and that she would be asking Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw to intervene.

“It has already been resolved. The Prime Minister has spoken on the matter,” Alexander said, pointing out that he had received communication from the Ministry of Education yesterday morning informing that he would be further contacted. “I am sure the details will soon be rolled out.” (MB)
