Education Officials Meet With Saint Lucia Teachers’ Union


As is customary, the Department of Education, Innovation and Vocational Training met with the Saint Lucia Teachers’ Union (SLTU), prior to the January 9th, 2023 reopening of school.

This meeting set the tone of engagement for the year and placed in context matters of interest and concern for both parties.

Emphasis was placed on the general conditions of work, occupational health and safety issues, with specific focus and infrastructural matters at identified educational institutions.

Of paramount importance are the concerns surrounding school discipline and school security.

The Department of Education thanks the Saint Lucia Teachers’ Union for this engagement and looks forward to a continuation of this collaborative approach towards the strengthening of the education sector.

  1. Can you imagine as a government preening and being proud to offer Majestic ex-workers, some after even 50 years of service, a paltry $10,000? And saying this is what was negotiated for This is ridiculous. The government knew what it was doing making that announcement just before Christmas, what with people being blinded by the so-called Christmas spirit, so happy to have money to spend and what not. Shameful. And Majestic workers you ought to be ashamed of yourself for accepting peanuts when the LIAT ex-workers got so much more. So there are hierarchies of ex-employees now? Obviously.

  2. I am sure you would have enjoyed ten thousand dollars to buy more sour grapes.
    Happy new year

  3. I hope they discuss doing something about the continuous drop in standards. As a business owned I am totally distressed about the pure garbage we see graduating from schools these days. The number of kids I’ve had to let go of during the probationary period is heartbreaking. Basic skills like spelling, dictation, typing up a letter is severely lacking. And yes you virtue signalling morons will make claims about being patient. I simply don’t have the time to teach kids basic English, Math and common sense when it is the job of the school system to do that. Nor will I jeopardise a business I’ve worked so hard to make successful trying to accommodate non performers.

  4. Frustrated Employer, I understand your dilemma. That’s so sad, but it’s not just the system. If at least half of those you’re talking about would make a genuine effort to learn those skills being taught at school and after school, then you would have a different task at hand. Those students also need to take responsibility for their learning, and stop the “I don’t care” attitude. If so many can leave school with the basic skills acquired, why can’t those you’re referring to do so as well?
