Solidarity With The MAM

The Union of Professional Educators – Voice of the Workers is shocked at the news that a health consultant responsible for the co-ordination of the Public Health Response to COVID-19 has been “removed”, as stated by the Medical Association of Malta earlier today, following a recommendation he made regarding school closure. The UPE would like to show its solidarity with the MAM on the matter. 

It should go without saying that the government should not, at any point in time, interfere with the advice given by medical professionals on pandemic-related issues, as such interference could potentially cause COVID-19 positive cases to spike unnecessarily. 

To date, the UPE has not endorsed the “backdoor deal” concluded last Friday between the MUT and the Government since it has not yet been provided with any of the details included therein.
