Teachers docked for unauthorized absence

Already disheartened by the fact that many of their union colleagues did not show up for the National Trade Union Congress protest on Friday, March 16, 2007, in Belmopan, teachers in the public school system got more bad news on Tuesday when the Ministry of Education issued a memo, stamped "URGENT," declaring that teachers who were absent on the day of the protest will be docked a day's pay effective April 27, 2007.
