Action taken against precarious jobs
The action taken by the Government when, in the past days, he withdrew the contract he had given to a security company that was not observing the law in terms of wages and work conditions, justifies the General Workers’ Union talk against precarious jobs, GWU said in a statement.
GWU said that the Government himself was perpetuating precarious work by issuing tenders that do not even cover the employees’ wages.
The organisation maintains that it cannot understand why it had to be the Court’s decision for the Government to stop the contract for a company that gave services to various government departments.
According to GWU, it was the first organisation that talked against it.
Precarious work became a virus in the Maltese workforce to the extent that the Professionals, Finance and Services Section of the GWU complained various times about the poor tenders that were being issued for this sectors, the statement added.
The Union concluded by saying that it urges Government to investigate every tender with low prices and withdraw contracts where necessary.
