Health and safety of students potentially at risk – MUT ready to direct members due to a decrease in supervision
The MUT is ready to direct members carrying out transport supervision during arrival and dismissal times unless the allocation of supervisors respects the established ratios. The Union is receiving feedback from the majority of state schools whereby the 1:50 ratio for supervision is not being respected. This is resulting in various health and safety issues since hundreds of students are potentially at risk due to lack of supervision. This seemingly cost-cutting measure is unacceptable and the MUT shall be waiting until Friday 18th October before directing members.
