Ata staff, ban on replacing school workers in the first week of absence and administrative staff in the first month: it’s time to review the parameters

No school official can be replaced in his first week of absence, even if the school is to be understaffed. A mat technical and administrative assistants Things are getting worse, since they cannot be replaced by absence of thirty days. Provisions date back to Stability Act 2015 (L.190 / 14, Article 1, Section 332, Prohibition of substitution, further specified by the notes DPIT Prot. n. 2116 of 30 September 2015 and DGPER prot. n. 10073 of 14.04.2016) and which are renewed from year to year Regulation on substitutes (You see Note 25089 dated August 6, 2021 which governs the substitutions of the school year just past).

In this context, in which the institutes usually have only one collaborator per plexus or at most two, and in this state they have to manage the complexity of the opening of the building, managing the cleaning and monitoring; and in which the DaD has increased the use of technologies in the classroom tenfold, so that it is essential to resort to IT technicians who, when they fail, are often not replaced by the government and the Ministry of Education. , increasing the dose with continuous cuts in staff.


In this respect, the Flc CGIL trade union commemorates the year 2008, when 57,000 ATA staff were sent home.

Based on that, the demand from the unions is of course that of review the parameters for ATA staff assigned to schools.

Moreover, the summer does not ease the workload of these human resources, especially in these two years of Covid, which have multiplied the school bureaucracy, including the summer, in view of the return to school in September. And as for the pandemic, we should remember that in recent weeks the school secretariats have been overloaded with practices related to new employers, substitutes and the management of Pon projects (and the latter also weigh heavily on school collaborators). .

The trade union Flc CGIL also notes in this regard: “We would like to see, as far as possible, the replacement of the secretariat of the Secretariat at the end of the teaching activities (June 10th or June 30th), if after that date. the demands do not decrease, but, in fact, increase “.

To reiterate the importance of the Ata staff in the schools, the Francesco Sinopoli Federation draws up a list of tasks that we consider to be extremely useful in calculating the tasks on the shoulders of the school’s administrative staff.
