Labour MP Evarist Bartolo says government workers within the education sector were unfairly treated after being left in the dark over their employment security.
Labour spokesperson on education Evarist Bartolo said that the government treated employees within the Examinations Department and Matsec Board unjustly, by failing to keep them informed regarding their job security.
“Workers of the two entities complained that they were completely left in the dark and did not know what was going to happen to them. They were suddenly ordered to start working at the National Examination Agency in coming days without prior notice,” Bartolo said.
According to Bartolo, the National Examination Agency was founded to do the work already being done by the Examinations Department.
When this agency was being discussed in parliament earlier this year, Bartolo said the Opposition asked what would happen to the employees adding that they should be kept well informed of what was to happen to them.
“It seems the government failed to do this resulting in these employees experiencing anxiety and uncertainty who have dedicated themselves for years. They should not have been treated this way,” Bartolo said.
