Eleven unions have urged the public not to pay their water and electricity bills before the 45 – day time window of their bill is reached.
This follows the expiration of the ultimatum set by the unions for the Prime Minister to meet with them after they had found discrepancies in the working out of the new utility tariffs.
The Prime Minister insisted that the matter was to be taken up with the Malta Resources Authority regulator and not his Office.
The unions deemed this to be unacceptable and gave the Prime Minister until the 9th of January to meet them, or face possible industrial actions.
The eleven unions are the General Workers Union, the Malta Union of Teachers, the Malta Union of Midwives and Nurses, the Union of Cabin Crew, the Union Haddiema Bank Centrali, the Union Technical and Clerical Mepa, the Union Professjonisti Awtorità ghall-Ambjent u Ppjanar, the University of Malta Academic Staff Association, the Airline Pilots Association, the Union Periti u Inginiera Servizz Pubbliku and the Association of Airline Engineers.
