Video: Industrial action at Victoria Middle School unless heavy construction work stops during school hours
The MUT is appealing with the Government to stop the construction work being done during school hours near the Victoria Middle School in Gozo. This school is in fact sandwiched between two massive construction projects leading to serious health and safety shortcomings and to unbearable noise from the sports complex project. Heavy machinery is stationed literally inches away from students and educators in classrooms and no conversations could be held in corridors, let alone lessons in classrooms. Students and educators should not be put at risk and everything has to be done to protect and safeguard everyone at the school. A video of this is being released for all to see:
In view of this, the MUT has notified the Government of industrial action on Monday with members at this school to report to work, instead, at the neighbouring senior school. This unless heavy construction works are stopped during school hours and the required health and safety measures are taken to the satisfaction of the MUT.
