Reaction by UPE on Church & Private Schools Transport

Free transport to Church School and Private Schools students is a step in the right direction and Union of Professional Educators – Voice of the Workers (UPE) is supportive of beneficial measures affected by the government.  

The positive move has an effective impact on early morning traffic and reduces the financial burden of parents and guardians throughout the year. 

In the circumstances it would be ideal for the social partners and the official side to conform to meaningful dialogue to reach initial agreements with ease in order to create trust in the process. 

The Union will remain vigilant on the overall school transport system espescially where it ‘s members may be involved .
