Following several months of negotiations, the MUT and MCAST have signed a new Collective Agreement for managerial grades at MCAST. This is the first Collective Agreement for these grades, who were previously not covered by any agreement. The agreement provides for an improved financial package including allowances, a newly defined grading structures and improved conditions of work. This agreement signifies not only a first for affected managerial grades but is also first for the MUT which is now widening its representation in the educational field and is carrying out negotiations and collective representations for grades who were previously not represented by the MUT. The union shall now be working with MCAST and with the affected members to ensure a smooth implementation of this agreement.
