Feb 11 - GSD Meets With Unite To Discuss Union’s Manifesto For Change

The GSD has met Unite the union to discuss the Union’s Manifesto for Change which the Union presented to the Government last week. The meeting had been requested by GSD Leader Keith Azopardi last week so that the Union could also present their proposals to the Opposition and was attended by Keith Azopardi with MPs Danny Feetham, Edwin Reyes, Roy Clinton and Lawrence Llamas.

The Union’s wide-ranging proposals are directed at improving employment terms and conditions for agency and supply workers, better providing supported employment, increasing the quality of employment and removing unfairness and insecurity. The meeting is part of the ongoing discussions between the GSD and Unite on issues affecting workers. The opportunity was also taken by the Union to table its ideas on creating a Sustainable Skills Base in Gibraltar.

GSD Leader Keith Azopardi said: “We have been raising issues affecting agency workers for some time. The recent decisions announced by Government have sparked much confusion among workers and require answers. The Union itself has said that it was not consulted on some of these announcements which it was dismayed about understandably.

“The discussions with Unite will be very helpful to us when considering our own plans on skills and training as well as on improving the security of employment. We have been raising these issues for years and saying that there is a desperate need for real skills and training as well as a new deal for agency workers and an end to the insecurity of workers on permanent supply. We are committed to continue working with Unite on these issues.”
