Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The UĦM Voice of the Workers will be meeting with Education Minister Owen Bonnici and with the Health Promotion Department to discuss its concerns on the opening of childcare centres and SkolaSajf.

In a statement, the union said that it is concerned about the risks posed on the employees and the children attending the centres and Skolasajf.

Following the meeting with the authorities, the UĦM said it will be in a better position to instruct its members on the possible directives issued by the union.

On Tuesday, the Union of Professional Educators – Voice of the Workers said that it does not tolerate the lack of communication by the Ministry of Education with regards to the opening of Skolasajf.

The UPE said that it expects the Ministry for Education to initiate communication immediately to inform the union of the protocols which will be in place on the opening day of Skolasajf and if these protocols are not presented, or if they are not satisfactory, the union will instruct its members to not attend Skolasajf, and resign from their posts, so as to safeguard their own wellbeing as well as that of their families at home.
