Back in September some teachers were trying to get on the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) council. Pedro Shepherd was trying to get re-elected. The headline in the Nation was SLATE SET FOR DLP ELECTIONS.
Years ago public officers couldn’t be in anything so. Mr Shepherd’s friends Dwane Goddard and Trudi Harris followed him. Quincey Jones from Ellerslie was another teacher in the elections.
I want to know if the law was changed for public officers to be doing these things. Somebody has to know the answer but no one wants to speak up.
I realise the BUT called a meeting at last. They weren’t saying anything much until I wrote Barbados Underground.
President Pedro Shepherd Accused of Lacking Integrity
The general secretary said appointments for secondary school teachers were coming. They remembered they have members in the secondary schools. It looks like you have to force these people to remember.
Three of the BUT officers have called a meeting for Sunday. Is it a union meeting or a meeting with people who are on the executive? These people make me laugh. They tell members about being strong together. Then we see that they are not united.
Eyes on you Women on this International Women’s Day
In todays Society Housewives are not given their rightful due respect as the designers and builders of a future generation
Most of the time they are looked upon as being insignificant and beholding to what they have learned from their parents and are meek mannered and unwavering in an antiquated way of thinking
Today on international day i prefer to shine the spotlight on Woman who might have been quiet and contented to be the builders of society dedicated to being vigilant and being satisfied in the role as being the best parent Ever
Cheers and Happy International Woman’s Day to all you strong and dedicated Women who choose the profession of being a Parent
Increase in national wage after ten years shows a miniscule amount so small added to the 6.25 that those who supports the increase by 2 25 ought to be ashamed
Actually annually is about 23.5 cents increase per year over a span of ten years
Yes I say ten years because this figure would cover a ten year period going forward
