However,[url=$%&/]China Jerseys Cheap[/url], teachers would have voted.?He noted the low voter turnout at the elections and said that it was ?not a true reflection of the confidence [of teachers].??I think many persons were frustrated and they vented their feelings in a way that we have to take stock of…to really understand why so many people refused to vote.?He added that many teachers might have felt that the Guyana Teachers? Union did not do enough for them; ?that the economic situation in this country is such that teachers? salaries should be increased several fold…also that all teachers [feel that they] should be given duty-free concessions and not [just] a selected bunch.?Bynoe stated that the low voter turnout could also be blamed on teachers feeling that they all should be given house lots and housing loans…to help them…[but] they fail to realise in getting such benefits, that we [the union] have to start at a certain category before we can get to the level of everyone.?The GTU President added that there were some discrepancies during the elections in that some teachers did not receive ballots, a matter that will be dealt with.During the next two years,[url=$%&/]Cheap Jerseys From China[/url], the new GTU President plans to deal with several issues ranging from ?the level of indiscipline among teachers right now throughout the country.?Colin BynoeHe assured that teachers?
