By Benjamin Flowers: As a part of its ongoing industrial action against the Government of Belize (GOB), the Belize National Teacher’s Union (BNTU) is preparing another national demonstration in Belmopan.

The teachers are gearing up for a protest at the National Assembly, to coincide with the meeting of the House of Representatives scheduled for Friday, May 28.

The teachers have been on strike since April 26, and on Monday, decided by majority vote to continue with the longest sustained strike on the union’s record.

Major points of contention for the teachers include compensation for the 10 percent salary cut being implemented as well as the three-year increment freeze. The teachers also say they want solid commitments from the government regarding the implementation of good governance reforms such as the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC).

Their protest is backed by the Public Service Union, which also recently decided to strike by majority vote.
