Scores of teachers protest to show dissatisfaction with the Government

Hundreds of educators across the island are protesting at Teachers Place today, saying that they are fed up with the government’s handling of their affairs.

The teachers walked with their chairs and umbrella, braving the scourging heat.

Easter Holidays were extended in Antigua and Barbuda after teachers threaten to take action.

The teachers are calling for reclassification and lack of security among other issues

Nurses joined the teachers this morning in the protest since they too have been at odds with the government over several issues including uniform allowances and overtime payments
