The agreement was also approved by the University Council on 23 February. I am Director of the Department of Anthropological Sciences and Director of the Mediterranean Institute. Anthropologist and psychoanalyst by profession. I strongly support the principle of collective representation as a linchpin of genuinely democratic working relationships. I believe that UMASA plays a crucial role in ensuring that changes in our working conditions and work environment occur with academics and are not imposed on them. I have been a member of the UMASA Council since 2015, having first been a pro and president of the federation from 2016. To ensure that the contact between UMASA board members and university staff is even better, a number of its members co-opt around UMASA as “contact points.” Given the diversity of needs found at the university, contact points are chosen to represent the diversity, disciplinary and otherwise, of umASA membership. Talk to your contact points if there are any problems or questions you want to bring to the attention of UMASA. The new collective agreement for non-university staff at the university contains a number of new conditions, including improving work-life balance, improving flexibility and leave procedures, improving procedures for staffing vacancies and improving different allowances. On Thursday, July 30, at 1 p.m., a very important online meeting will be held to decide the outcome of the collective agreement. Registration is required HERE. The registration deadline is Thursday 30. At 11:00 a.m.
The link for the online meeting is sent before the session. Mut has registered a commercial dispute with the University of Malta because the university does not respect the labour court`s decision on the recognition and negotiation of the new agreement. The MUT has always respected the decision taken in 2007. The differences between the university and MUT over the proposals of the new agreement […] The UHM Voice of the Workers announced in a statement that the collective agreement for administrative, technical and industrial staff at the University of Malta had been concluded by 94% of workers.
