BNTU hosts national demonstration

Posted: Wednesday, November 7, 2018. 1:17 pm CST.

BBN Staff: Thousands of Belizean teachers are at the Belmopan Civic Center for the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU) national demonstration.

This morning, the teachers gathered in Belmopan City and made their way to the Ministry of Education offices to express their discontent with the Minister of Education, Patrick Faber and the way he is handling the categorization of hardship allowances and his remarks about Proposal 22.

The demonstration is being held with the purpose of sending a message to the Government of Belize to keep the issue of Proposal 22 alive.

In a press conference last week, BNTU’s President Elena Smith stated that Faber continues to spread untruths about the ongoing negotiations for hardship allowance for teachers in remote areas and that the ministry is disrespecting the union by telling them to meet with district education managers instead of the Minister and his team.

Smith said that Faber’s repeated disrespect of the union will not go unchecked, and the union is prepared to send a strong message.

Yesterday, the Utilities Union sent out a statement to the media announcing their support for the BNTU’s demonstration.

Opposition Leader, John Briceno is also present at the demonstration and stated that he fully supports the union.
