The General Workers’ Union has lifted its directives of industrial action, which where scheduled to start taking place by next Monday, by all Healthwork employees within the public health sector, after the Government has presented its proposals on new working hours.

In its reaction, the GWU states that, in light of these new proposals, it no longer felt it necessary that these industrial actions should take place. The Union reminds that these industrial actions were related to the fact that the workers hired by the private contractor were forced to work additional hours, because of the way in which the working hours were being given to them. The GWU states that, while it’s suspending said industrial actions, this industrial dispute remains active until an agreement is reached, and then implemented.
