Centenary Celebrations


A Message from The President

Good day Educators, Colleagues & Friends,

On behalf of our General Secretary, Dr. Michael Charles, and the Executive Committee, I would like to welcome you to the new Bermuda Union of Teachers’ website.

On February 1st, 2019, the BUT will be celebrating our 100th year as a Union in Bermuda. As Bermuda’s first trade union, we are excited to have reached this milestone, and proud to carry the torch that our founding fathers lit nearly a century ago.

The sacrifice, dedication and vision formed by Rev. Rufus Stovell, Miss. Adele Tucker and Miss. Edith and Matilda Crawford, has evolved into a 900 member-strong body of counselors, educators and therapists, who collectively work to mold today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders.

As our celebrations draw near, we encourage you to join us on February 1st, when we will walk a symbolic route, passing previous locations of significance in the BUT’s journey to 100.
On February 2nd, we will hold our Centenary Gala at the Southampton Princess, where we will honour our past presidents for their work in making this Union what it is today! For more information, please see here.

While you browse our site, be sure to read up on our history, and the impact that today’s educators are making in the lives of our students.
We look forward to seeing you as we celebrate 100!

In Solidarity,

Mr. Shannon James
BUT President
