In the coming days, the General Workers’ Union will begin the process of filling the position of a new secretary for the Hospitality and Food Section, which represents GWU members employed in a wide range of sectors, including hotel workers, food and beverage companies, entertainment companies, the cleaning sector and a number of government agencies. This section also looks after a large number of third country workers who work in Malta.
The post will become vacant when the current secretary, Kenny Muscat, steps down from the position at the end of the month to make his contribution to the civil service. During the years he held the position of Secretary, Mr. Muscat gained considerable experience in labor relations and made a valuable contribution to the conclusion of numerous collective bargaining agreements, providing great assistance to various members and workers, both personally and in individual cases.
The Section has seen complete development of both the membership and the workplaces within the Section under Mr. Muscat’s leadership. Based on Mr. Muscat’s experience, it is expected that he will continue to assist the GWU with other initiatives related to Industrial Relations.
GWU will soon announce the process for nominating and appointing the new Secretary, who will take office in early February. The GWU takes this opportunity to thank Mr. Muscat for his years of service to the benefit of members, workers and the organization, and to wish him well for the future.
