Union Stalwart George Frazer Cries Shame on Education Minister

Luke Palacio

Union executives also called out the government for what they say are acts of Union Busting. Former Union Leader, George Frazer says he’s ashamed of Minister of Education Patrick Faber who was once a teacher.


Luke Palacio, National President, B.N.T.U.

“It is a very sad day in our nation when the government of this country has decided that it is going to attack the teachers of this nation. In any country where that happens, then there is need for great concern because the teachers are nation buildings, the teachers teach these same politicians, these same government officials, who are going around the place intimidating our teachers, intimidating our parents, intimidating our managers.”


George Frazer

George Frazer, Former Secretary General, B.N.T.U.

“I have been to many conferences abroad; never yet have I seen the extent of the intimidation, the abuse, the union-busting tactics. It is a shame and I decry and ask our parents and nation and also the school management to speak out against these things. The schools, those that are grant-aided, are not the property of the government. Respect our democracy, respect our constitution. Let me cry out here shame on Minister Faber, who took more than five months to answer our letter. Shame on you Patrick Faber, Shame on you. You yourself as a teacher.”

    Frazer should be ashamed of paying all the young and underprivileged girls that he tends to surround himself with, ashamed of just being around cheap Melchor bars

    But what do you expect of politician.. This is the same one who aims at being the next prime minister. God save Belize if this person gets to the position of leader of this country. My people you need to save our country from this people. They only think of themselves and their political party. These people do not want the good for our country. Watch how the prime minister protects the corrupted ministers in his cabinet. Stand up for Belize, the time to save your country is now.
