UB faculty and staff union plan demonstration for tomorrow

Posted: Wednesday, July 8, 2020. 11:20 am CST.

By BBN Staff: In light of the recent issues of financial exigency facing the University of Belize, the University’s faculty and staff union has planned a demonstration to be held tomorrow, July 9 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

The demonstration will commence at the National Assembly and continue with a march through South Ring Road, Libertad, Hummingbird Avenue and then on to the UB administration building.

In a statement issued by the union today, the union listed its demands:

A demand for the Labour Department to produce a signed certificate.

A demand for UB Senior administration to follow due process of consultation with faculty and staff with regard to its “declaration of financial exigency”.

The union says that various parties have questioned the legitimacy of the union and the right of faculty and staff to due process.

“We have been demanding that the administrators of the university treat the faculty and staff as equal partners in the process of mitigating financial exigency. We have taken a stand and voiced our concerns with you, the media. And now the issue is already out in the court of Public Opinion,” the union expressed.

The union says that the peaceful demonstration is being conducted to take a stand.

“We also wish to provide our UB President, Prof Emeritus Clement Sankat, the opportunity at this demonstration (through a delegate, as necessary) to indicate that the administration will submit to due process (that is, to properly consult the faculty and staff over his recommendations before tabling them at the Board level),” the union said.
