In an effort 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 applied for an injunction on the Ministry of Education in the Supreme Court.
That injunction will be heard tomorrow at the Supreme Court in Belize City, where the faith of the Teacher’s salary will be determined.
Today we spoke to President of BNTU Orange Walk, Otilio Munoz, who encouraged all Orange Walk teachers to wear their Green “Teechaz gat yuh back” t-shirt to show solidarity for the BNTU during the very decisive time for all educators.

We want to show solidarity and that is the main important thing that we are together throughout the country that we are together in this and that we showing solidarity since we cannot make presence tomorrow there but we are in solidarity with what is happening because tomorrow is very decisive to what will happen so I think everybody is eager, everybody in the media and the whole populace of our country is willing to hear what will be the results tomorrow and so I am asking our members to come out with that green shirt to show that we are in what is happening tomorrow.”
