UPE declares industrial dispute with Education Ministry

The Union of Professional Educators (UPE) has registered an industrial dispute with the Education Ministry.

The UPE declared it had registered the dispute as various requests for constitutional rights had been ignored.

The UPE accused the Education Ministry of also ignoring its complaint to the Ombudsman at the Office of the Commissioner for Education.

The UPE complaint is about trade union recognition and representation of its educator members.
