Emergency BUT meeting’
The Bermuda Union of Teachers has called for an emergency meeting of members to take place this morning.
But the Department of Education said the union had not requested for members to have time away from work for the meeting.
A spokeswoman for the department said: “Therefore teachers are not authorised to absent themselves from work but are expected to report to school for the regular school work day.
“However, the Department will work with the BUT in alignment with correct protocols to find a more suitable time to hold a general membership meeting rather than disrupt the teaching day for students.”
The meeting as announced was to take place at the Heritage Worship Centre on Dundonald Street at 8.30am.
