The MUT has requested an urgent meeting with the Minister for Education and Employment to discuss the following two topics of utmost importance:
– The shortage of Teachers and LSAs, current figures, projections and measures being implemented to address the situation. The Union is still highly concerned about this unprecedented situation which is stressing the workload to the limit and which is affecting all services provided.
– The continuation of negotiations of the sectoral agreement. The Union adhered to all tight deadlines during negotiations in summer but no reaction is forthcoming from MEDE after three weeks from the last negotiations meeting.
The MUT will keep members informed accordingly.
