Malta -HSBC workers on strike after company backtracks on promises -April 07, 2015

Strike at HSBC as collective agreement negotiations reported regress instead of progress.

Workers at the HSBC banks went on strike as collective agreement negotiations reported regress instead of progress. Talks between HSBC and the Malta Union of Banking Employees (MUBE) have been ongoing for months, but failed to deliver any results. After HSBC offered a package that was significantly worse than it had endorsed in the last year, the union called a strike. After several days of sit ins, the workers organised two day strikes in April. Media report that HSBC banks are running low on cash, as dispensers have not been refilled. Talks between MUBE and HSBC, mediated by the Malta Employers Association, are ongoing.
