Guyana: GTU president rubbishes claims of corrupt use of teachers' union dues

The Guyana Teachers Union has rubbished statements by the government that billions of dollars in membership dues have been misspent as a nationwide strike by teachers enters its second week.
 
The union says there is clear evidence that teachers benefit annually from the 7 hundred Guyanese dollars monthly contribution that the government has said it will no longer collect on behalf of the union since the start of the industrial action over improved wages.
 
GTU President Dr. Mark Lyte says the strike and other forms of industrial action will continue until the government addresses the teachers' demands, dismissing a suggestion by President Dr. Irfaan Ali that teachers should wait until 2027 for the best welfare to be delivered to them.
