Comments by UĦM on Aġenzija Sapport workers’ agreement denied

The Parliamentary Secretariat for Persons with Disability referred to a UĦM statement on its industrial actions at Aġenzija Sapport, saying that it is not true what the Union is contending that there are still various pending issues on the collective agreement.

In a statement, the Parliamentary Secretariat said that all the pending issues were resolved at a meeting on Friday, 7th September when agreement was reached on everything, except for one issue.

The Secretariat added that the actions taken by UĦM are disproportionate because they concern only one issue which, in all the context, is a small issue however with repercussions that may be big because it may lead to disagreement among workers and to unsustainable demands. It said that these actions can never be justified because they are leading to added and unnecessary suffering on hundreds of persons with disability and their families.

During the meeting an agreement was reached on a financial package leading to good increases, both in the basic salary and even in a number of allowances to all of Aġenzija Sapport workers, the statement said.
