During a meeting between the General Workers Union administration and the Parliamentary Secretary for European Funds, Chris Bonett, some of the operational programs of the European Funds for Malta for the years 2021-2027 were discussed, which were launched just a few days ago.
The GWU notes that the world of work is changing at a rapid pace, including artificial intelligence and digitalization, which affects workplaces as they are not always prepared for these constant changes due to lack of information.
Therefore, GWU praises and emphasizes the importance of cohesion funds, which it uses for the continuous training of workers throughout their careers. It sees it as its duty to take care of workers and encourage and help them to continue their education and advance in their careers.
Parliamentary Under Secretary Chris Bonett mentioned one particular aspect of this package of funding, which is the largest in our country’s history, that focuses directly on access to people. The government wants the main benefits to go to workers and their families, apart from businesses that continue to thrive.
At the end of the meeting, both sides, the GWU administration, composed of Secretary General Josef Bugeja, President Victor Carachi and Deputy Secretary General Kevin Camilleri, and Parliamentary Secretary Chris Bonett, agreed to continue to work together to implement programs and projects that allow workers to have a better quality of life, for the benefit of members and workers in general.
