UĦM disappointed in government proposal for healthcare professionals

first_imgUnion Ħaddiema Maqgħudin (UĦM) said that it is disappointed that the government tried to skip them and start negotiations with someone else whilst in two years it only submitted feeble counter-offers for health-care professionals.In a press release the union stated that back in 2017, the UĦM had sent a number of new proposals whilst trying to negotiate a new sectorial agreement for ten health care professionals including dentists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, radiographers, podiatrists and scientists at the medical laboratory.The union said that it is worrying that after two years the government countered with proposals that put the professionals in a worse situation than those less qualified and did not keep to the usual parameters.UĦM is also concerned that that a few months ago the government accepted another union to get involved in the negotiations, something which is against procedure and will result in longer processes. On such grounds, the union has started procedures so that the government starts revising its position and negotiate a conditions package that reflects the professionalism and the competency of these healthcare professionals.WhatsApp <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> SharePrintlast_img
