TTUTA says they are fed up of being disrespected

The Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA), led a demonstration in Port-of-Spain, at the Bri­an Lara Prom­e­nade.

Teach­ers and oth­er trade union sup­port­ers tra­vers­ed the des­ig­nat­ed route – con­clud­ing with an ad­dress to up­date per­sons on the sta­tus of salary ne­go­ti­a­tions.

TTUTA President, Lynsley Doo­d­hai said teachers were pa­tient at this time as ne­go­ti­a­tions were yet to be­gin with the Chief Per­son­nel Of­fi­cer (CPO) for the pe­ri­od 2014 to 2017.

IzzSo media spoke with 2nd Vice President of TTUTA, Mrs. Kyrla Robinson Thomas this afternoon who said that today’s march was a result of the constant disrespect shown to teachers by both the Chief Personal Officer (CPO) and the Minister of Finance, Colm Imbert, over outstanding negotiations.

Mrs. Thomas said beyond salary discussions, the union also has unresolved issues with the Education Sector.
