By BBN Staff: The National Trade Union Congress of Belize (NTUCB) has pledged to support the newly-formed University of Belize Faculty and Staff Union (UBFSU) in its current dispute with the University of Belize (UB).
The NTUCB issued a statement today noting that details as to the nature of the dispute are not to be divulged because of a non-disclosure agreement, but called for the Board of Trustees at UB to honour UBFSU request and furnish them with information that will ensure that fairness prevails.
“This is an excellent opportunity for the University of Belize to collaborate and refrain from the confrontational nature given these unprecedented times we are currently facing. Industrial relation issues at the University will undoubtedly result in extra financial constraints on the Belizean families who are trying to provide their children with higher-level education, therefore, we reiterate that this issue is of national importance,” the NTUCB said.
The union also called on the Board of Trustees of UB, and their Management Team, to treat the members of the UBFSU with the respect and dignity, reminding them that they only represent around half of the stakeholders of the University, but that the UBFSU represents the “true essence” of what makes up the University, labour.
