The President and Secretary have attended a Forum Nazzjonali Trade Unions Seminar held last Saturday 17.01.15 under the auspices of the President of the Republic H.E. M.L. Coleiro Preca on the subject of Dealing with Multiple Claims for Trade Union Recognition. The three political parties made their presentations, views and arguments on the subject, together with the studies carried out by the University’s Centre of Labour Studies on the 4 current options available. A healthy discussion by all participants followed, with the aim of convergence on an agreed and accepted method of resolving recognition issues. No official or final position was reached, but the Seminar was intended to stimulate thinking and provide feedback on each Trade Union’s preferred method in resolving recognition issues.
