UHM warns of industrial action on Gozo ferry for CarnivalUnion Haddiem Maghqudin (UHM) has said today that it has registered an industrial dispute with Gozo Channel Company that it to start industrial actions from this coming Thursday, February the 16th.

UHM said that it is because of a disagreement on the Collective Agreement financial package of these workers, which expired at the end of 2008.

This weekend sees the start of Carnival in Gozo, which would normally draw thousands of visitors to the island from Malta.

The union said that despite numerous representations made, no revision has been put forward in the financial proposals by the Gozo Channel Management that correspond with the productivity and performance.

UHM said is is disappointed that although the Union and the Gozo Channel employees cooperated for many years with Gozo Channel to achieve the desired results, “Gozo Channel Management is now failing to appreciate the situation adequately.”

“Gozo Channel Management have been informed by correspondence that a range of different industrial actions have been issued which will start on Thursday,” the union said.

      Why did the UHM wait this long to take action (four years later)??? and is it not being vendictive to take it during the time when the Gozitans look forward towards a bit of incoming business

      Vince Farrugia was telling us that his union wants to bring jobs for Gozo that`s why he was in favour of Hondoq r Rummien Monster .

      Now how come his successors are proposing this industrial action on Gozo ferry for Carnival??

      @Frans Said

      Vince Farrugia was Director General of the GRTU not UHM.
      Inbidlu ftit is-suggett Frans mhux dejjem Hondoq. Hawn daqsek fuqhiex titkellem perezempju nies bla xoghol li hawn Ghawdex u it-toroq dizastruzi li hawn.

      @Peter The reason why I mentioned Hondoq is that because we were told that Chambray was going to employ hundreds of jobs and none of us residing in Ghajnsielem did work there. Also this happened to San Lawrenz .

      What I wanted to point out is that people have heard enough empty promises and I do not want it to happen again in Hondoq .

      In regards work I fully agree wit you
