Workers at Gutenberg Press are to start benefiting from improved conditions of work and better financial benefits, after the General Workers’ Union secured them a new collective agreement.

David Darmanin, secretary of the union’s technology, electronics and communications section, said that the new agreement had a four-year term, 2017 to 2020.

“The agreement is evidence of the management’s faith in the workforce’s capabilities,” he said. “It also came at a time when the company is acing some major challenges in its UK export market following the country’s decision to leave the European Union.”

The company’s managing director, Frank Spiteri, said that the new collective agreement was the result of the harmony within the company and the work carried out by the employees.

Shop stewards Jeffrey Vella and Roderick Spagnol signed the agreement with Darmanin, on behalf of the workers. Spiteri signed on behalf of the management, together with director Boleslav Spiteri and works manager Ralph Cassar.
