Malta -Work stoppages at ST Microelectronics -August 31, 2015

Workers at ST Microelectronics started with two-hour stoppages (two in a row) in an attempt to put pressure on the negotiations for a new pay deal. Trade union GWU that ordered the industrial action called on the company not to play for time. The trade union demanded talks with the overseas management and said its proposals were not unreasonable, given the austerity measures, which the workers had endured over the years. The company is one of the biggest exporters and employs 1,600 workers.
