Malta - Industrial action ordered at the law courts - October 31, 2016

Three separate cases of industrial action were initiated at the law courts by the union Voice of the Workers Unjoni Haddiema Mghaqudin (UHM) over a number of outstanding issues affecting clerks, messengers and other court workers. A non-concluded collective agreement, discrimination in job applications and health and safety issues are among the issues that the UHM is seeking to address through the started industrial action. The negotiations for an agreement for clerks and registrars at the law courts have been going on for over two years now. The industrial action orders workers not to send or read e-mails, not to respond to telephone calls, and not to upload court judgments. A UHM-representative said that it is unacceptable for an agreement not to be concluded within such a large amount of time.
