Regional Teachers Union appalled at senior Guyanese teacher not being promoted pending injunction
The Caribbean Union of Teachers (C.U.T) has thrown support behind the Guyana Teachers Union (G.T.U) regarding Guyanese teachers being promoted by the Teaching Service Commission (T.S.C).
The umbrella organization’s President Julian Monrose in a letter to President David Granger says the body is appalled at what seems to be a complete disregard towards the just concerns and demands of the G.T.U.
Mr. Monrose is calling on not only President Granger but his subject Ministers of Education and Labour Department to use their “good office in bringing about a settlement of the issue.”
A letter was also forwarded to T.S.C’s Chairperson, Leila Ramson about the organization’s position given that they represent Teachers Union in the region.
“Given that the accusations against the T.S.C compromise its own integrity, the C.U.T suggest that the members of the Commission demit office so as to help resolve the current situation.”
The replacement of members on the Teaching Service Commission is what the Guyana Teachers Union wants since the body has lost all confidence in the Commission.
It was after several concerns were raised during the GTU’s general council meeting back in July last that a decision was made to file an injunction in relation to the matter.
The next court hearing of this case will be on March 14 after it was differed earlier this week in the High Court.
