STATEMENT FROM THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION ON INDUSTRIAL ACTION BY TEACHERS

February 10th 2015


The Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Innovation considers that the action of the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) of holding meetings during working hours has declared industrial action at the Alma Parris Memorial Secondary School and Parkinson Memorial Secondary School where no dispute exists between the Union and the Ministry.

 The Ministry condemns in the strongest possible terms, the action of the BUT and urges all teachers of Alma Parris Memorial and Parkinson Memorial to return to work immediately, as the Ministry considers the action taken as not in keeping with sound industrial relations practices which have evolved in this country for over 50 years.

At no time did the Executive of the BUT or the administration of the Parkinson Memorial School draw to the attention of Ministry officials any issues related to discipline or safety of students, teachers, other staff members or members of the public who access the school; neither have they indicated that any teacher has been injured or threatened by students.

It is highly irregular for the Union to take industrial action without referring to the Ministry on any issue which affects the schools.

Teachers are part of the disciplinary structure of the school system, and as such must cooperate in order to manage student discipline.

The Ministry stresses that this withdrawal of labour is tantamount to a strike. As a result, like any strike/withdrawal of labour, which fails to follow the proper industrial relations practice, there are consequences of which the employee should be aware.

The Ministry again takes this opportunity to encourage the teachers at both schools to return to work immediately. (Ministry of Education/BGIS)

Prime Minister Stuart To Attend Inter-Sessional Meet

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart is scheduled to leave the island tomorrow, Wednesday, February 25, to attend the Twenty-Sixth Inter-sessional Meeting of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), which gets under way in The Bahamas, from February 26 to 27.


As incoming Chair of the regional group, Barbados’ Prime Minister will be a member of the Bureau of the Conference for the period January 1 - June 30, and will Chair the CARICOM Heads of Government Conference from July 1 to December 31, this year.


During the two-day summit, which will be held at the Meliá Nassau Beach Resort, a central topic of discussion will be that of Leveraging CARICOM’s Human, Cultural and Natural Assets for the Economic Development of the Community.


In addition, the talks are expected to focus on financing for the CARICOM Secretariat and other community institutions; recommendations regarding the establishment of a CARICOM Committee of Ambassadors, and a review of work on the matter of Reparations for Native Genocide and Slavery, among other matters.


Relations with the Dominican Republic and matters of regional security are also key items on the agenda. Heads of Government will also take the opportunity to agree on steps that should be taken to better improve the decision-making process at CARICOM meetings, and will hold talks with the Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organisation, Dr. José Graziano Da Silva, on ways in which his organisation can support agricultural development in the Community.


The conference will be chaired by Prime Minister of The Bahamas, Perry Christie. The Barbados delegation will include Attorney General and Minister of Home Affairs, Adriel Brathwaite; and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Maxine McClean. During Mr. Stuart’s absence, Minister of Tourism, Richard Sealy, will act as Prime Minister.
