The MUT expressed its appreciation for the work carried out by Prof Frank Ventura as the chairperson of MATSEC. Prof Ventura was always understanding of the MUT’s stands and was very respectful towards the work carried out by the Union even when there were different positions between the two entities. It is hoped that his insight and expertise of the sector shall facilitate the transition at MATSEC. The MUT would like to congratulate Dr Odette Vassallo for her new post as the Chairperson of MATSEC and is looking forward to continue to collaborate with MATSEC.
Meanwhile, the MUT has requested a meeting with the Ministry for Education and Employment and MATSEC regarding the proposed reform. The Union has already presented its position based on feedback from members (LINK) and is requesting the initiation of discussions on the matter.
