As of 10am this morning, the teachers of the island have gone on strike. I haven’t many details at this point but will update as I can. This stems from the binding arbitration agreed to by both the BUT and the gov’t apparently not being adhered to. The agreed pay raise/back pay should have been evident in the recent teachers pay packages and it apparently wasn’t. This is troubling on both sides. The problem is with the trouble now caused to the parents of these children may overshadow any sympathy normally extended to the teachers.
UPDATE: It appears that students have been recalled to schools. Again, little to no official information is forthcoming so this is based on hearsay or from colleagues who have children.
