The Union has protested with MEDE after a communication was sent to schools in relation to fundraising events held both inside and outside school premises, which now need an additional approval from the VAT Department. Schools are also being requested to specify how they shall be using the proceeds. The MUT stated that if it confirmed that VAT inspectors will start scrutinising school activities in this way, the Union issue directives to all schools by the end of this week. The MUT stated that this is yet another confirmation of the pseudo-autonomy of schools and a clear manifestation of the high level of mistrust in the work carried out by educators.
