A breakaway teachers’ union will be set up under the wing of the UHM Voice of the Workers, the UHM said in a statement.

A group of educators will be forming the Union of Professional Educators (UPE) – Voice of the Workers.

They are Rita Catania, David Rossi and George Debono, three former MUT council members who resigned from the union on Tuesday after learning about aspects of the new collective agreement signed with the government from the media


They said the council was never presented with a complete printed version of the agreement, which was however published on news portals.

The UĦM said that the need for such a union was felt at the request of many Maltese educators. It would ensure a strong representation of their interests and provide services to members.

The MUT will be holding a press conference later today.
