Malta - Industrial action in the public sector for union recognition - December 31, 2015

Industrial and legal action by the Union Haddiema Maghqudin has been withdrawn following an agreement with Malta Public Transport. The company and the union held an urgent meeting to find a solution to the union recognition situation. It was agreed that the UHM would be given sole recognition immediately. A meeting followed for the two sides to agree on a plan of action on how to proceed for a collective agreement. The company explained it was finalising the verification process in a rigorous manner to ensure that the result was final for the sake of stability in the interest of workers and the public. The union had ordered drivers not to collect fares or handle ticketing machines. The union ordered the action claiming the company was delaying the union recognition verification process.
