Malta -Bus drivers on strike receive warning letters -March 18, 2015

Warning letters as strikes called by UHM without GWU are technically illegal.

Bus drivers who took part in a two-hour strike organised by trade union Haddiema Maghqudin (UHM) have received warning letters from Malta Public Transport management. The dispute is partly caused by a fight in union ranks, as both UHM and the General Workers Union (GWU) aim to represent the MPT workers. Despite a court ruling that workers have the right to choose to be represented by either, GWU is the only recognised union at MPT and therefore strikes called by UHM without GWU are technically illegal.
