The Jamaica Teachers' Association (JTA) is warning that it will not relent in demanding that teachers receive all the benefits and rights agreed on in negotiations with the Government.

Already, the JTA has said it would not be party to another wage freeze.

In his New Year's message delivered by president-elect Norman Allen, JTA President Doran Dixon said the association would not allow the gains made so far to be diminished.

He has also urged that the Government be cautious in the move to close some schools deemed to be under performing.

The education ministry has said the move is aimed at improving efficiency in the school system.
