The Botswana Sectors of Educators Trade Union (BOSETU) is at loggerheads with the Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST) regarding the suspension of its shop steward based at the university.

As it is now turning into a trend to see BOSETU at loggerheads with many entities regarding allegations of ill treatment or maladministration of its members, the union has now taken on BIUST as it feels that the university had no reason to suspend the steward.
