The MUT has announced that industrial action by its members will take place at MCAST next week.
The Union in a statement said that, “following intensive meetings between the MUT, MCAST management and the Industrial Relations Unit (IRU), it is clear that there is no willingness from the IRU to reach an agreement on how to give lecturers what they are due.”
The MUT argued that the agreement expired more than a year ago, “and after long negotiations during this period, the IRU are using delaying tactics to stall negotiations in spite of reconciliation meetings.”
The Union concluded by saying that it is therefore issuing a fresh list of directives to members to start as from this Monday, the 22nd of January, and is announcing a strike of 2 hours each, between 10am and 12pm for Thursday the 25th and Friday the 26th of January.
