During 2006 a group of Supply LSAs paid to undertake a Diploma Course at the University of Malta. On 2 December 2008 these Supply LSAs have successfully graduated and obtained the Diploma in Facilitating Inclusive Education (2006-2008). However only on 4 October 2009 they were appointed to become LSAs2. It means that more than 10 months increase in salary was stolen from these Learning Support Assistants. It means also, that they will need to work an extra 10 months in the future to escalate in the required scale. This situation has only occurred with this group of diplomats. Other groups graduating from the same Diploma, before and after 2008, have been appointed nearly immediately after their graduation day.
Now the following has occurred:
Press Release No. 10/2012
APPOINTMENTS OF LSAS
The MUT is hereby declaring an industrial dispute with the Government following its failure to
appoint Learning Support Assistants despite of the fact that they graduated in November 2011
and their interview results for LSA II were published in the beginning of February 2012. In
fact, in a meeting held with the Ministry of Education the Minister had promised that the
appointments were to be issued last week.
In spite of continuous representations by the MUT, the Government has not acted upon the
situation thereby leaving a considerable number of LSAs possessing all the requisites for regular
employment with conditions of temporary workers.
This hurt us even further.... How come no one fought for our rights back then in the 2008?
That's why we need your help...Help us join forces so that we get back what is ours....
