Soldiers to be paid for extra hours worked during Covid-19 emergency

Minister for Home Affairs, National Security and Law Enforcement Byron Camilleri has stated that soldiers will be paid for extra hours they work during the Covid-19 emergency.

Minister  Camilleri declared in a Government statement that he had held discussions with the General Workers’ Union Section representing the Armed Forces, during which he reiterated the commitment that soldiers will be given an allowance for every extra hour they work over and above their normal hours.

The Armed Forces are the only disciplined corps whose members are not paid for extra hours they put in. This contrary to workers in other entities and disciplined corps.
