TTUTA 2019 Election—A woman will be leading them

When all the votes are counted later today, history will be created today when a woman is selected to lead the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers’ Association (TTUTA).

The election of a new executive for the teachers’ union got underway this morning.

Vying for the post of President is Upper Carapichaima Presbyterian Primary School Principal, Nirmala Chinebas-Dindial; Eastern Boys’ Government School Principal, Jemima Riley; and senior teacher at Tunapuna Girls’ RC School, Antonia De Freitas.

More protest action from TTUTA coming

Ten days after they staged a peaceful protest in Port-of-Spain, the Trinidad And Tobago Unified Teachers Association is again calling on teachers to come out in their numbers on November 5th, to demonstrate in a similar manner in San Fernando.

The unanimous vote was taken during an emergency meeting of TTUTA’s General Council last evening.

The meeting was held eight days after hundreds of teachers heeded the call by TTUTA to march through the streets of the capital city, to protest stalled wage negotiations.
