Malta - Union acted in a justifiable way - November 30, 2018

The trade union Unjoni Haddiema Maltin - Voice of the Workers (UHM) acted in a responsible and justifiable manner when signing the sectoral agreement for the health sector, according to a ruling of the civil court. The case was brought to court by 10 individual workers in 2013 who demanded €500,000 in damages.
