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.
