Communist Party condemns attacks on unions
The Communist Party of Malta has condemned the “anti-democratic campaign” against General Workers Union Secretary General Tony Zarb, and the ex- President of Forum John Bencini by the Nationalist Party.
“Systematic attack against trade union leaders does not bode well for industrial democracy. These same tactics are being used by the centre-right government in Greece against union representatives who are campaigning against austerity measures and precarious employment.”
The party warns that union leaders should be on the alert so as not to fall into a snare. Union leaders should carry on with their struggle against precarious work and in defence of workers conditions regardless of who they face, the party concluded.
