The Malta Union of Teachers has announced a one-day strike at MCAST as part of a list of industrial directives it issued following the declaration of a trade dispute because of “lack of adherence to agreed deadlines in which the college had to provide counter proposal for the financials of the Collective Agreement being negotiated.”

In correspondence with the MCAST management, the MUThad  noted that it is clear that whilst the Union is taking agreements seriously, with all the necessary commitment towards its members, MCAST is instead dragging its feet and finding excuses to refrain from adhering to commitments to the detriment of educators and ultimately students.

Following yesterday’s dispute declaration with MCAST, the Malta Union of Teachers announced its directives on its website, which amount to 14 directives effective as from Tuesday 5 December and a full-day strike on Friday 15 December 2017.

The list of directives for all members affected by the Collective Agreement at MCAST is as follows:
– No submission of assignment results
– No submission of written assignment feedback
– No Institute tours with students
– No participation in student graduation ceremonies
– Ignore all management-imposed deadlines
– No participation in official extra-curricular events/activities
– No participation in media events
– No communication with students beyond time-tabled lectures and contact hours
– No answering of emails
– No use of personal telecommunication devices
– No use of Virtual Learning Environment (VLEs) such as Moodle, Schoology, etc
– No staff meetings
– No Continuous Professional Development (CPD) meetings
– No apprenticeship monitoring
