Teachers Union updates its demands to Government

Posted: Monday, May 17, 2021. 10:36 am CST.

By Benjamin Flowers: The Belize National Teacher’s Union (BNTU) has updated its list of demands to the Government of Belize (GOB) and followed up by blocking bridges and roads countrywide this morning.

The BNTU is demanding Government to agree that, following the three-year increment freeze, teachers be placed on their correct payscales as if the increment freeze had not occurred. The union says it is also demanding “better compensation” for the 10 percent salary cut which has already been implemented.

The teachers blocked off the Burdon Creek Bridge near mile 6 on the George Price Highway, as well as the Bel Can bridge, Bel China bridge, and Swing Bridge in Belize City. In the districts, roads were blocked off in lieu of bridges. The activity was set from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., much to the ire of many commuters and others trying to get to work.

The BNTU has planned to make media rounds and is scheduling a press conference later today.

BBN will be attending and keeping you up to date.
