Executives from the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA) are meeting today with teachers from the South East Port Of Spain Secondary School, who were traumatised by yesterday’s close call during a gang shoot-out.
Government has fired National Maintenance Security Company (MTS) board member Ian Forde just hours after he appeared on a United National Congress (UNC) Monday Night Forum platform.
In a letter dated March 18, Finance Minister Colm Imbert dismissed Forde citing a "reconstitution of the board of directors."
However, in a brief interview Tuesday, Forde said he was surprised by the news of his dismissal.
"There is no doubt in my mind that my dismissal had to do with my appearance on the platform," he said.
