MUT appeals with Maltese MEPs to exclude education from TiSA
The MUT wrote to the Maltese MEPs on the votes on the European Parliament’s recommendations on TiSA (Trade in Service Agreement), which are scheduled to take place in the International Trade Committee (INTA) on 18th January 2016 and in plenary on 2nd February 2016. The European Parliament’s recommendations on TiSA are not legally binding, however the recommendations will set out the position of the European Parliament and it is therefore critical. The MUT stated that as an affiliate of the ETUCE, the Union forwarded strongly appealed that public services including education are safeguarded by explicitly carving out public services from TiSA. The Union also included the original ETUCE documents and message.
