Malta -Dispute on how to deal with precarious labour -June 05, 2013

The Employers' Association has stated that it will not accept any definition of precarious employment which is not internationally recognised. The organisation does not want to be drawn into discussions about any labour market issue which is not measured or properly defined. Whilst condemning abuses at the workplace, whether they are committed by employers, unions or employees, the Association reiterated its position that a number of practices which are being labelled as being precarious by some unions are, in reality, illegal practices which can be stopped through better law enforcement, self-regulation efforts and ethical public procurement processes which allow tendering companies (in particular in the sectors of security, caring and cleaning) to be able to offer decent conditions of employment to their employees.
