Teachers to Gather for Emergency General Meeting

The Executive of the Antigua and Barbuda Union of Teachers has issued an urgent call?to all members to join them for what has been themed an "Emergency Meeting" to be held at the Union's headquarters on Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 11:00 a.m.

In a briefing with Staff Representatives last Friday, the President sought to?establish the basis for calling the meeting at such an hour. Noting that while it was indeed customary to hold such meetings?at the end of the working day,?in this instance, the time was most opportune for capturing the attention of the membership, and most importantly, the attention of the government. Among the issues identified by the Union are:

1. Working conditions

2. School Security

3. Payment of back pay (in relation to the reclassification exercise)

5. Upgrade of Teachers

6. Impasse with the Minister of Education

The Union has been at odds with the Minister of Education over his refusal to acknowledge its nominee to the Board of Education. Following statements by Minister Browne in December which the union called "grievous", both parties have engaged in a war of words, with the Union calling for a full retraction of comments Browne made on ZDK radio. This impasse is expected to dominate discussions at Thursday's meeting.
