MUT de­clares trade dis­pute with St An­gela Kinder­garten, Żab­bar

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Malta Union of Teach­ers has de­clared a trade dis­pute with the Sec­re­tariat for Catholic Ed­u­ca­tion, which is re­spon­si­ble for St. An­gela Kinder­garten.

Ear­lier this sum­mer, the union said it had ob­jected to the trans­fer of two Learn­ing Sup­port As­sis­tants from St. An­gela, Żab­bar, to other schools as the rea­sons pro­vided by the Sec­re­tariat were un­jus­ti­fied. Fol­low­ing a se­ries of cor­re­spon­dence and a pro­posed meet­ing which was never held, the Sec­re­tariat pur­sued with its plans to trans­fer the two LSAs.

Rather than tack­ling the mis­man­age­ment is­sues, which in­clude se­ri­ous fi­nan­cial and ad­min­is­tra­tive mal­prac­tices, the Sec­re­tariat is trans­fer­ring per­son­nel in an at­tempt to hide short­com­ings and si­lence em­ploy­ees. Mean­while, the Union is­sued a di­rec­tive to the two LSAs af­fected to con­tinue re­port­ing to work at St An­gela, Żab­bar.
