Teachers are warning that there could be a major disruption in classes when schools resume after the holiday.

Today, the teachers’ union — Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) — passed a resolution to take all actions deemed necessary, to ensure that the wage demands of its members are met.

That includes staying off the job.

Here’s the JTA president Doran Dixon.

The resolution comes after the JTA team met with the Public Service Minister, Horace Dalley two weeks ago with their demand for a wage increase.

The JTA said the Minister promised a response today…

But at three o’clock this afternoon, Mr Dixon says he didn’t receive a reply from Mr Dalley.

The government has so far offered the teachers a 5 percent increase on basic salary over two years, this has been flatly rejected.
