The Minister of Labour, in Guyana, Joseph Hamilton has deemed a strike planned by the Guyana Teachers Union (GTU) to be illegal.

He said his ministry has made formal communication to the union, informing of them of the illegality of their planned action, which is expected to take place from February 5th to 16th.

The Guyanese labour minister said that the General Secretary, Coretta McDonald, and the executive of GTU are fully aware based on the correspondence between the union and the chief labour officer that they were attempting to have him override procedures and the stages that are necessary for good labour relations.

He called on Guyana’s teachers not be intimidated by the Guyana Teachers Union into taking strike action, as he gave the assurance that he will do all in his power to protect their rights.
