The MUT has made representations with the Ministry for Education and Employment regarding the provision of insurance to educators. For years the position of the Government was that it does not insure Public Officers. However recent developments have proved that the position of the Government had changed and is now starting to issue insurances to specific employees. The MUT has corresponded with the Ministry about the matter but no reply has been forthcoming. In view of this, the MUT has issued an ultimatum (of 25th November 219) to the Ministry to initiate discussions on the provision of insurance to educators. If no commencement of discussions occur by the said ultimatum, the union shall be issuing industrial action.
