By BBN Staff: Leader of the Opposition, John Briceno wrote to Prime Minister Dean Barrow petitioning that he reconsider government’s position on the deduction of teachers salaries.
Briceno states: “ We find it very inconsiderate and disturbing that any government would even consider withholding the salaries of our hard working teachers, more so the month before Christmas.”
“Many Belizeans have expressed that executing such actions would not only reflect a government that is unfair but certainly callous and cold-hearted.”
Yesterday, the BNTU won the injunction case. However, in an interview with the media, Chief Education Officer Carol Babb said that she is unsure of when teachers would receive their monies because paysheets for November have already been submitted.
