The national teacher's union SNE-CGFP questions Minister of Education Claude Meisch's intentions behind the FFP2 mask campaign in the country's schools.

In a press release on Monday, the union criticises the ministry's progress in providing masks to staff members, noting that they made the demand for FFP2 masks several months ago already.

They openly question Minister Meisch's motives following the public announcement that teachers are now indeed receiving the masks, wondering if this move is just a "marketing campaign".

The union welcomes the ministry's acknowledgement that the virus easily spreads in schools, but remains critical about the "ridiculously low" number of FFP2 masks that will be provided in the end.

Finally, the press release requests that Minister Meisch turns words into actions and protects his employees.
