For the first time in its history, women are in the majority on the executive of the Saint Lucia Teachers Union (SLTU), re-elected President of the organisation, Julian Monrose, has observed.

Monrose spoke as the SLTU concluded its biennial convention in Vieux Fort last week.

The new executive of the union, elected in March, was officially installed at the end of the convention.

In addition to Monrose as President, the executive comprises: Don Howell – First Vice President, Troy Nestor – Second Vice President, Chantal Peter – General Secretary, Vern Charles– Deputy General Secretary, Treasurer – Utilda Joseph and Alice Medard – Public Relations Officer.

President Julian Monrose also observed that for the first time in over forty years, the union has a female General Secretary.

“We are very proud of that – we see the women coming into their own in the organisation, taking on the responsibility, playing their role and it is significant because the majority of the teaching profession are women,” the SLTU President told St Lucia Times.

“The teaching profession is made up of about 85 percent women,” Monrose explained.

He asserted that the SLTU applauds the women who have come forward to serve.


  1. My observation is that :
    More women = Less Productivity
    Most Women bitch and complain more than men , blame others, are rigid , own way and do not conform to existing standards. Standards usually drop when women show up
    Somebody tell me that I am wrong, please do !
    Also show me where I am wrong.

  2. Women making up the majority on the executive of the SLTU is good but what would be even better, is, if the executive can be effective in their negotiations with the government in delivering the ‘goods’ for their members.

    • Don’t worry. Negotiations will be effective because women not eating nice when it comes to their money.
