The teachers union puts at six, the number of schools that have complained about health and safety problems in the new academic year.
Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association President, Davandand Sinanan, in a News Power Now interview on Wednesday, said the affected schools are Tranquility Government Primary, St Theresa’s Girls RC, Arima Hindu School, Morvant\Laventille Secondary, Couva West Secondary and Cumuto Presbyterian.
He insisted that the union will not back down from its zero tolerance position on safety standards for the students and teachers.
Mr. Sinanan maintained that the union will not engage in any verbal war with the authorities on this matter but continue to highlight the need for a meaningful system to minimize setbacks during the school term.
