    How the heck can students make their way to school as expected IF there is no public transport. This dosent make ANY sense to me. I don’t see why both senior and primary school dosent start on the same day! Do they ever thing of the parents that have kids in senior and primary? Who is left to babysit? Correct me if I’m wrong there are NO camps for ONE day!

    The union doesn’t care about schoolchildren getting to school. Not their problem.

    • ImJustSayin says:

      Not only do they not care about students not getting to school. What about parents who have to take time off from work to take them or even stay home for the day and may lose pay. I just don’t understand it. We live in a country where many Bermudians have a sense of intitalment and selfishness. SMH!

      This is not a biuproblem I marched on the hill in March to prevent things like his now my same union wants me to go against it .
      Members need to pay attention to what is happening
      This is a wrong move.
      And I will not support it .
      This is 2017 no one is rich in my circle of friends
      We all have bills
      Union leaders make a fat wage just look at the gq president.
      The union needs to concentrate on real union matters
      And stop all this stupid action
      Members need to speak up and stop being used

    Bermy, do you think the B.I.U. give a damn about the children trying to get to school ? they have an agenda….. and guess what their members are not what it use to be… so all I hope is that the current Gov, for once stand strong against these loosers… and stand strong for the majority of us…..

    Why don’t you all just do as i do and boycott the union gas station.. I take my money else where..

  6. WHAT ARE YOU SAYING says:

    If your OBA Government cared about disruption of services they would stop all of this underhanded nonsense. They didn’t care that the same parents you talk about have to make sure the students of TN Tatem now have to be transported to Clearwater while the TNT school is finally being cleaned of mold. Look at the work being done on the cabinet building to rid it of dampness and mold. Our schools and infrastructure are in poor condition as well but all this OBA Government seems to be interested in is spending loads of money on a new airport and America’s Cup. Be honest all of you who are so negative…where are the priorities of this Government…enough is enough…it’s time to take a stand.

      They listened and the school is being renovated.

      Furbert doesn’t want to listen to anyone. He is in Tweed’s pocket.

      You really don’t have the intelligence to understand any of this, do you?
