By Aaron Humes: The Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU) has reminded that only one group of people has influence over the docking of teacher salaries over industrial action – and it is not, the union noted at a press briefing this afternoon, the Government of Belize.

BNTU President Elena Smith explained, “Our rules are very clear. The general managers make that decision, not the Prime Minister, not the minister. The general managers of schools. And for the government schools, they also have a general manager and we know that yes, that general manager answers to, but it’s the general manager who must make those decisions. And having put that position out there ahead of the general managers is another matter.”

The BNTU faced similar issues during its 2016 strike and took the matter to court where it won.

The BNTU and its sisters, the Public Service Union (PSU) and Association of Public Service Senior Managers (APSSM), have now been striking for 17 days, a modern record, and are set to continue through at least the end of the week.
