New collective agreement for Mellieha Bay Resort staff

General Workers’ Union secures wage increases and better conditions for workers after months of negotiations

Workers at Mellieha Bay Resort were guaranteed better work conditions under a new collective agreement that was negotiated on their behalf by the General Workers’ Union Hospitality and Food Section, the union announced on Saturday.

Workers will benefit from wage rises, a restructuring in workers’ grades and improvement in general work conditions.

Union section secretary Kenny Muscat said negotiations had taken place over the last few months and that the new agreement, which covers the three years between 2016 through 2018, would give workers further incentive to improve their output at work.

Marco Abdilla, general manager of the Mellieha Bay Resort, said the agreement was evidence of strong cooperation between the company and the GWU.

“This collective agreement is a result of the hotel’s positive performance, a result of its management’s leadership and the staff’s hard work,” he said.
