PL to unionise disciplinary forces
Disciplinary forces including the Police and the Civil Protection Department will be given the right to join a union of their choice should the PL be elected, Labour Leader Joseph Muscat said this evening.
He was addressing a special session of the General Workers Union (GWU) National Council, adding that these members will not have the right to strike.
The PL Leader commented that the Party will be willing to work with all Unions, adding that the PL found common ground over its energy policy with the GWU. He described the proposal which the Party received from the Union and Caritas regarding precarious working conditions, which read that companies which undertake precarious employment practices will not be given public contracts.
Lastly, he mentioned that a collective agreement would be drawn up for workers belonging to industrial projects and Services Ltd., whose wages have been frozen for many years.
