noimageThe Belize National Teacher’s Union has taken its defence of teachers from the streets to the Court room as today the Union’s attorney applied for leave in the Supreme Court to hear their case for an injunction on the Ministry.

The BNTU wants to halt the Ministry of Education’s plan to dock the salaries of those teachers who took part in their 11 day strike in October.

The BNTU took their case to Court today, after a letter to Minister Patrick Faber went ignored. In that letter, attorney Eamon Courtenay pointed out that the Government’s decision to withhold salaries in November is ultra vires, unlawful and unconstitutional.

In Court documents, Courtenay indicates that the matter is urgent as teachers are expected to be paid on 25th November 2016.
