noimageThe Council of Management of the Belize National Teachers’ Union met on Saturday and has agreed to return to its membership for a mandate on the matter of making up time lost during 11 days of strike in October.

 

As you are aware, after an impasse on the composition of an outstanding meeting, the Minister of Education and other education officials chose to go around the union to settle how the time is made up. In consultation with managements of primary schools they have agreed to extend the calendar by four days in January and 2 in April.

 

The Ministry says the teachers will be paid for those days but the BNTU has insisted that their teachers’ salaries not be docked since they are prepared to make up the time. Our reports are that the Union does have plans it intends to implement for a way forward but there is no word on what those will be. We understand a statement is to be issued sometime this week.
