Church Schools Show Compassion Towards Their Vulnerable Educators

The Union of Professional Educators – Voice of the Workers is highly appreciative of the compassion and empathy which Church Schools are showing towards their vulnerable educators by taking each request to be exempted from face-to-face teaching into account on a case by case basis. 

The UPE hopes that such humane common sense will prevail and be replicated by the Ministry of Education and Employment. 

Members of the UPE who fall under the vulnerable category, (https://deputyprimeminister.gov.mt/en/health-promotion/covid-19/Documents/mitigation-conditions-and-guidances/Guidance_For_Vulnerable_Persons.pdf) and who work in a church school, are to show all the necessary medical documentation, stating their condition and requirement for exemption, to their respective Heads of School for due consideration.

Should any of our members have any further queries about this issue they should not hesitate to contact us at info@upevow.com or by calling our offices on 2590 5400.
