The Caribbean Union of Teachers is 79 years old. The organization came into being on August 21, 1935, at its inaugural meeting in Trinidad and Tobago as the West Indies Teachers’ Association. This came at a time in the Caribbean history when the working class was intensifying its efforts to dismantle the colonial apparatus in its struggle for improvement of living conditions of workers. The CUT has always reflected and symbolized the spirit of Caribbean unity, which mirrors the historical and cultural experiences of the region.
