Education Minister Urges A&But To Withdraw Threat Of Industrial Action

Education Minister the Hon. Daryll Matthew is hoping the Antigua and Barbuda Union of Teachers will withdraw its threat of industrial action for next Monday’s resumption of classes in public schools.

He says the Government has done all it can do at this point to address the teachers’ concerns, while the remaining issues continue to be given attention.

Minister Matthew said ex-gratia payments to all 34 eligible teachers have either been made, or the teachers have indicated they will collect their cheques next Monday.

He also outlines major progress on upgrades for eligible teachers, the completion of lighting at the 14 priority schools identified by the A&BUT, while 159 cheques for retroactive payments are available for collection at the Ministry. (State Funded Media)
