Jamaica Teacher’s Association President, Owen Speid says he’s becoming increasingly concerned about teachers retiring for more than a year without receiving their pension.
He says there are teachers who’ve died without receiving any money.
Mr. Speid says the JTA wants teachers to start getting payment a month after going on retirement.
The JTA president says the government is giving scant regard to the welfare of retired teachers.
He was was addressing a JTA half-yearly meeting at the St John’s Methodist Church in St James last Friday.
