The Antigua and Barbuda Union of Teachers (ABUT) is not relenting its stance on teachers being exempt from mandatory vaccination despite staunch opposition from the government.
In a statement released today, the union states that communication was sent to the Cabinet requesting a meeting to discuss the proposed exemption.
In its latest missive to members of the union, the ABUT warns that it will take industrial action if there is not a favorable outcome or a formal response from the government.
On September 21st, the Union of Teachers adopted a resolution opposing the government’s vaccine mandate, through a vote of the general membership.
The union maintains that it will continue to work for the preservation of the livelihood and the terms and conditions of employment of members.
