Cheap Authentic Jerseys the union

Past President of the Guyana Teachers’ Union (GTU), Colin Bynoe, is very concerned about the Ministry of Education (MoE)’s slothful approach to the debunching issue, especially since the process got underway during his Presidency inPast GTU President, Colin Bynoe2011.Additionally, Bynoe says that the Ministry of Education has been both dishonest and disrespectful in the entire matter which is being drawn out in the public eye.Bynoe was quite upset that the MoE has resorted to a blame-gaming series of remarks that have hit the press, regarding the issue of debunching and the supplying of information, or lack thereof from the GTU.Bynoe was the person who kick-started the debunching propositions under his tenure from 2011, but to date, no monies have been paid to teachers of Guyana. Debunching is related to an additional payment for teachers with respect to the number of years of service for all categories of teachers in the public education system in Guyana.Bynoe said that he was part of the bilateral committee of members of MoE and GTU which was formed to deal with the issue and subsequent payout to teachers.A very concerned Bynoe noted that the GTU is now being “blamed by the present Minister [Of Education] — that it is the GTU’s own people who caused this thing not to be paid until now!”“Nonsense! It’s a bilateral thing between the GTU and MoE! We had to come together and form a team in order to find a way forward how we were going to find a scale for the debunching and how much money it would have cost and all of that!”Bynoe noted that the GTU supplied the information and list for debunching to the MoE early in 2014 which was given to Manickchand. “It was signed off by Mr. Lance Baptiste…”He said the Minister claims that she only received the document in the latter part of 2014. “And I find it has been a big lie!”He hopes the GTU can find the necessary records to prove to the Minister. “This Minister took time- out— she’s been all around the country…sharing out ($10,000) Cash Grant vouchers…I don’t even think she had time to look at those documents, because every day you listen to the TV, papers, you seeing a picture of the Minister sharing out vouchers, so you can’t know whether she had time to be in she office, because every day she sharing out things!”Bynoe finds the allegations blaming the GTU in this matter as one that is very dishonest and disrespectful.In presenting her Ministry’s version of the de-bunching situation, Education Minister Priya Manickchand explained that it was in 2010, that a joint Committee was set up to deal with the proposal for de-bunching. The Committee saw representation from both the Ministry and the GTU sides,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, the Minister added.She said that after the Committee met,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, a memorandum dated May 20, 2010, was sent to all Head teachers who are members of the union, to submit information in a specified format as agreed upon by the Committee.  But after one year,jerseys from china, only about 10 per cent had submitted the requisite information, Manickchand disclosed.But Bynoe noted, “That Committee came together and sent out letters to all the Head teachers of this country, and the Head teachers did not return the documents on time. The MoE is today blaming us; that it was our own Head teachers who did not return the stuff on time. Isn’t the MoE shooting itself in the foot that they also did not make an effort? Because it was a joint committee who sat there to do that!”Current GTU President, Mark Lyte, had also voiced his dissatisfaction about the issue.“One may want to say that the process wasn’t clear,” said Lyte, at a  press conference some time ago, as he pointed out that in September of last year a Task Force completed its work in ensuring that the way was paved for the monies to be paid to teachers.“Again the year came to an end and nothing was done,” said the GTU President. He disclosed that the Union had even written to the Education Minister asking that a response on the matter be forthcoming within three days. But according to him, “To date we have not received a response from the Ministry of Education.”Bynoe added that how the matter is currently being dealt with by the Ministry is totally unacceptable. “We are saying that this approach is unacceptable and we will not sit by and allow these things to continue to happen to our teachers.”The veteran trade unionist asserted that the Ministry of Education believes that they “own the union” and can treat teachers however they want.Bynoe, who held numerous senior posts within the GTU, including that of President and Vice- President, noted that the GTU is given the mandate by teachers of Guyana to demand the rights of teachers by the MoE,Cheap Jerseys From China, “and if we don’t do their jobs,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, when they (the teachers) discover that we (the union) are not doing the right things to support them in whatever wrongs the Ministry is doing,Wholesale China Jerseys, we will always be in trouble!”Bynoe stated that the MoE has the wrong idea if it believes that it can do the union anything and they would not “fight back.”He noted that the Debunching Agreement was signed and supposed to have been paid since 2011, “and I do hope that the present officers of the GTU will ensure that it is paid.”
