Concerned BNTU Members Seek Intervention from Caribbean Union of Teachers

Concerned members of the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU) has written to the President of the Caribbean Union of Teachers, Dr. Garth Anderson, asking for their intervention into the Ruth Guerra-Shoman presidency.  The group has made multiple attempts at getting the attention of the General Council of the BNTU, to delve into the legitimacy of Guerra-Shoman’s candidacy, but they are yet to get any satisfaction.  Our newsroom was told that the next move would have been an application to the court for judicial review, but it turns out that the group of concerned union members have sought help from their counterparts in the Caribbean.  In its letter to Dr. Anderson, the group stated, quote, “We hereby request the intervention of the Caribbean Union of Teachers for a proper and objective review to be conducted to determine the legitimacy of the newly elected President of the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU), Mrs. Ruth Shoman.  This request is based on possible serious infractions during the election process and thereafter as described further.” End of quote.  The letter goes on to state that Guerra-Shoman’s presidency was gained through a veil of secrecy, and that her criminal history and inactive service in teaching are contrary to what the union’s constitution allow or require.
