A collective agreement for academic staff at the University of Malta and the Junior College for the period between 2014 and 2018 was settled. It was signed by the University Rector, the trade union for academic staff union UMASA and the teacher’s trade union. The agreement places salary increases for academic staff in parallel with those of other civil service workers. In the meantime, the situation in the island’s trade union movement is quite turbulent with much infighting and rivalry. Efforts are made to bring unions together and several new unions or union sections are set up in the wake of a Bill which would grant members of the police force, army, civil protection, detention services and prison warders the right to join a trade union.
