The administration of the General Workers’ Union together with the Pensioners Union, in the past few days had a meeting with the Minister for Social Policy and Children’s Rights Michael Falzon in order to continue the discussions on the current situation of the pensioners who were born before 1 January 1962.
“In the pension reform that was carried out in 2007, a distinction was made between those born before 1962 and those born after. This led to the creation of complaints that are being brought to the GWU Pensioners Association,” said the General Secretary of the GWU, Josef Bugeja.
He added that in this context, the need was felt for the Pensioners Association to discuss this situation with the concerned Ministry. The meetings actually started a while ago.
For his part, Minister Michael Falzon said that he understands the position of the GWU Pensioners’ Association and the situation in which these people find themselves. “That’s why we are taking care to work on it, so that once again we try to fix anomalies that others have created”.
