Jamaica Gleaner / Normalcy has returned to the education system as teachers end their sick-out over their contentious wage negotiation with the government.
Teachers protesting the Government’s wage offer of 16 per cent over a four-year period had been off the job since Monday.
However, they were called back to negotiate, following an emergency meeting at the Ministry of Labour yesterday.
Representatives from the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Education deliberated in a marathon session in an attempt to forge common ground on the vexing matter.
President of the Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA), Georgia Waugh Richards, says progress was made at yesterday’s meeting.
