By Zoila Palma: Last night during a virtual meeting held by the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU), the majority of the membership voted to end the strike.

Reports to BBN indicate that less than 50% of the membership voted to continue the strike. During the meeting some teachers were lobbying for the union to cover the portion of their salaries that were docked by the Government during the strike period.

The BNTU’s strike against the Government’s decision to slash their salaries by 10% lasted 5 weeks. While the formal strike appears to have come to an end, the BNTU is looking at other options to maintain the pressure on the government to put in place and implement good governance legislation.

Teachers were mostly expected to return to the classrooms today and distance learning at their respective schools are expected to continue.
