Malta - Medical association in dispute with ministries - February 28, 2017

The Medical Association of Malta said in a statement that in spite of numerous pending issues affecting all sectors of the medical profession, the MAM-Government collective agreement that expired at the end of December 2016 is not being discussed. This has serious implications on the optimum delivery of patient care. MAM said it has made it clear that it will not sign any agreement with the government about the privatisation without a proper audit report. The government is proceeding with privatisation regardless of this decision. Moreover, recruitment of specialists is being done without adhering to the current collective agreement.  Therefore, MAM is giving notice of industrial action affecting all sectors of the medical profession if all pending issues are not satisfactorily resolved by 14 March 2017.
