RE:    $1,800 Lump Sum Payment

 

Dear Members:

 

Please be advised that the eighteen hundred ($1,800.00) dollars lump sum payment that some members are receiving is a payment for displacement for the period of six (6) months, which is current to February 2016.

 

Additionally, a payment of three ($300.00) dollars will be made monthly until you are re-posted to the domiciled Island.

 

Members who have not received your displacement payment are asked to contact your Area Vice President or the National Secretariat.

 

Thank you for your patience and support.

 

Sincerely,

THE BAHAMAS UNION OF TEACHERS

    John Musgrove (Mr.)

Secretary General
