TTUTA: T’bgo teachers obeyed call stay home on first day of school term

TTUTA’s Tobago officer Bradon Roberts reported a 20 per cent turnout of teachers in Tobago as a number of schools on the island stayed closed on Monday.

Roberts said from preliminary reports, the action was supported.

He said he didn’t know of any school that remained open for the day and the average turnout by teachers was 20 per cent, so an 80 per cent support was achieved.

Teachers were called upon to use Monday – the first day of the school term as a day of rest and reflection.

The Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association claimed this was necessary to show the dissatisfaction with the four percent being offered by the Chief Personnel Officer during negotiations taking place.
