School principals’ work-to-rule tied to union agreement

Seventeen school principals began a work-to-rule over the recent signing of their union collective bargaining agreement, Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education, said yesterday.

A work-to-rule measure is viewed as a form of protest by employees who work according to the rules of the job without undertaking any extra duties.

Mr Rabain said: “I am hoping that the Government is able to work its way through those particular issues and that we can return to having our principals doing the extra things that they are used to doing.”

He added that he was awaiting further information.

The school principals’ interests are being addressed by the Bermuda Public Services Union.

However, the union has declined to elaborate on the issue.
