Re-starting Academic Year University of Malta

9/17/2020 5:33:26 PM

UMASA (University of Malta Academic Association) would like to clarify that contrary to the impression given by reports in the media there has been no agreement with staff unions over the opening protocols for next academic year. UMASA has been in constant discussion and consultation with staff and management over the re-opening of the academic year in 2020. UMASA would like to clarify that discussions are still ongoing and agreement has yet to be reached on certain fundamental issues which remain unresolved. UMASA will not accept a situation whereby the legitimate pedagogical and health concerns of academic staff are ignored.
Dr. Jean Paul Baldacchino
President, UMASA
