The teachers union is calling for dialogue over what it describes as the sudden, unexplained decision of the Education Ministry to reduce the complement of M.T.S. security officers at a number of Government Secondary Schools throughout the country.
Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association President , Davanand Sinanan, in an interview with our News Room this afternoon said this reduction of security officers at schools came with no prior warning or consultation whatever with the major stakeholders in education.
Mr. Sinanan said he was able to raise the union’s concerns with the move in a short conservation with Education Minister, Dr Tim Gopeesingh today.
The TTUTA President explained he was told by the Minister the Ministry had concerns relating to getting value for money in terms of the quality of service provided by the firm.
