The MUT is reporting the failure in negotiations with the University of Malta on a new collective agreement for lecturing grades providing services at the University of Malta, Junior College. Earlier today, the MUT was presented with an amended position by the Government’s Industrial Relations Unit (IRU) whereby clauses which were discussed and length for months, and which included the basis of an agreement, were withdrawn by the university without any justification. This meant a regression in negotiations and cannot be accepted by the union. To this effect, the union registered its disagreement and left the meeting in protest. The MUT has also registered a trade dispute with the Government and the University of Malta and shall be meeting affected members early next week to initiate industrial actions.
Meeting set with new Permanent Secretary 17th January 2022
