NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Members of the Bahamas Union of Teachers could soon be heading to the picket line.

Why? Over an industrial agreement that hasn’t been registered for two years.

Union President Belinda Wilson is questioning why it’s taking so long.

The agreement was signed in May 2022, and according to Wilson, members are getting agitated.

She says the long wait is putting her members at a disadvantage.

But how does this impact teachers?

The BUT represents hundreds of teachers across The Bahamas.

Wilson says while they’ve benefited from the salary increase and insurance perks, there are many other advantages they haven’t been able to enjoy.

Take Family Island teachers, for instance.
