Another issue GRTU has this time is with the Ministry of Finance. This is yet another case where GRTU enters into agreements in good faith with Government and then someone realizes that this agreement is not good for Government and decides to unilaterally force a change.

It is something surprising for the GRTU, that after having survived the recession without having suffered irreparable damage and ended up in trouble like it has happened in countries as Greece, Ireland and Portugal, in Malta we still have not managed to reach an agreement nationally to mitigate for the waves of increases in the prices of energy products such as oil, gas oil and gas that we have to necessarily import. To make things worse we have not even arrived to an agreement to meet regularly to discuss the issue.
