Press Release: Update on MCAST Industrial Action
Following almost three days of industrial actions at MCAST, the MUT notes that the college management has just replied proposing a date for a meeting, to be held early next week, in which they confirmed that they will be in a position to present and explain its financial proposal of the Collective Agreement. The MUT will be looking into this proposal and report to members accordingly. Unless otherwise informed, however, all directives and full-day strike on Friday 15th December is still on as planned.
Meanwhile, the MUT deplores the fact the MCAST educators are being demonized for standing up to have adequate working conditions and remuneration. In a comment, MUT President Marco Bonnici stated that “I completely understand students’ concerns but I’m sure that they would agree that their lecturers should be respected, at least as one of their main educational resources, by being provided with adequate conditions of work.”
