TTUTA sues State over SBA payment

The T&T Uni­fied Teach­ers As­so­ci­a­tion (TTUTA) has sued the State over its fail­ure to pay its mem­bers ex­tra for mark­ing Caribbean Ex­am­i­na­tion Coun­cil (CXC) school-based as­sess­ments (SBAs).

In an in­ter­pre­ta­tion claim filed in the High Court last Thurs­day, TTUTA is ask­ing the court to de­ter­mine if its mem­bers should be com­pen­sat­ed for their con­tin­ued work on CXC’s Caribbean Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion Cer­tifi­cate (CSEC) and Caribbean Ad­vance Pro­fi­cien­cy Ex­am­i­na­tion (CAPE) ex­ams.

Licks for TTUTA over boycott call

Political analyst Prof John La Guerre has viewed the T&T Unified Teachers’ Association’s (TTUTA) call for teachers to stay away from classes on September 7 as holding the nation’s children to ransom.

La Guerre weighed in on the issue a day after TTUTA president Lynsley Doodhai called on teachers to boycott classes as a show of solidarity for the Oilfield Workers Trade Union (OWTU), which was dealt a hard blow with the shutdown of the Petrotrin refinery.
