Out of Context Reproduction of Collective Agreements in School Policies not permissible
The MUT wrote to the Secretariat for Catholic Education after it received a set of documents being prepared by schools whereby they are extracting parts of the agreement out of context and include them in other documents without making any reference about which text is the agreement and which is added text by the school. The MUT noted that sections of the agreement cannot be taken out of context and reproduced in documentation of schools giving the impression that a school policy is in fact the agreement. Unless this practice stops with immediate effect, the MUT stated that it would be directing members to ignore all school policies and refer only to the agreement.
In a reply, the Secretariat stated that it would be looking into the issue.
