The Malta Union of Teachers (MUT) is the longest established trade-union in Malta.
With over 7,000 members, the MUT stands as the largest sectoral trade union in Malta, representing educators and allied professionals across the whole spectrum of education: from kindergarten up to university level. The MUT is affiliated with FOR.U.M., ETUCE and EI, and is a very active trade-union participating in various local and international fora related to education, industrial relations and related subjects.
The MUT launched various initiatives, notable amongst which was an attempt to unite the local trade union movement within a TUC in 2008. Conscious of its moral obligations the MUT has, since its origin, realized the need to strike a balance between its member's rights and their responsibilities. This explains why the MUT took up a dual role, namely that of a trade union and a professional organization.
Over the years the MUT developed its dual role of a strong and effective trade union and an experienced professional educational organization. The MUT's role as a professional organization, particularly its interest in the professional development of teachers, was evident from the early years of the Union's life.
