THE Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) is set to host a special delegates’ meeting on Friday to decide on its response to the latest wage offer from the Government to educators.
President of the JTA La Sonja Harrison on Tuesday told the Jamaica Observer that the special delegates’ meeting is key for the teachers to decide on a position.
“We have gone around the island and spoken to the teachers in the 14 parishes and the teachers will come on Friday of this week to make a decision as to what they will vote. The delegates of the association will vote as to what it is they are saying to the Government about what is on offer,” said Harrison on the margins of Flow Jamaica’s connected and protected programme launch.
While she did not point to specific issues facing teachers, she noted that there are several challenges about which the JTA is in dialogue with the Government.
