The Barbados Secondary Teachers Union (BSTU) is awaiting The Ministry of Education, Science, Technology & Innovation to meet to discuss outstanding matters.

In a statement today, the BSTU said its Executive Council met on Friday to be updated on outstanding matters, affecting several members and schools.

The majority of these matters according to President Mary Redman await resolution with the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology & Innovation (METI), with whom the BSTU has been in communication to set a mutually convenient time and date for a meeting; in an attempt to avert pending industrial action.

At yesterday's meeting, the Council also confirmed the measures to be taken to deal with some internal issues of procedure.

The BSTU said Redman and the Executive Council assures its wider membership, and by extension, the general public, that it remains firmly committed to "fair and fearless representation of its constituents, and shall continue to pursue the justice of which its aggrieved members are deserving."
