UTT looking to send home 200 employees*

Education Minister Anthony Garcia

Over 200 employees have been identified by the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT) to be sent home.

Education Minister Anthony Garcia made the disclosure while speaking on TV6's Morning Edition programme yesterday.

“This identification was presented to us by the university and we really have to go through it to decide whether this recommendation can be sustained or whether there is need for further investigation,” he said.
