No substance in Air Malta talks, workers say

The Central Representative Council of Air Malta says government fails to provide concrete information

The Ministry for Tourism, the government and Air Malta’s management have failed to provide enough information and concrete answers to questions raised by Air Malta’s employees over the future of the national airline.

Alitalia, which is 49% owned by the Abu Dhabi based Etihad, will acquire a 49% stake in Malta's national airline.

The Central Representative Council (CRC) of Air Malta’s workers said that not enough information was being relayed.

“No concrete information is being given whenever the CRC meets with representatives of the ministry, the government or management,” CRC secretary David Sargent said.

The CRC said that “any concrete results” should be made known to the workers as soon as possible to give peace of minds.

The CRC, pointing out that current collective agreements have long expired, went on to call for improved working conditions and salaries under the new agreement.
