MUBE ADVISES HSBC THAT THE UNION IS REQUESTING A CONCILIATION MEETING WITH THE ACTING DIRECTOR OF EMPLOYMENT AND INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS
UNIONS WANT TO SETTLE LONG OUTSTANDING DISPUTE AMICABLY HOPING COMMON SENSE PREVAILS
MUBE has advised HSBC management that in the absence of the Bank’s response to the OPM’s offer for mediation, MUBE has now requested a conciliation meeting with the acting DIER at the Department for Industrial and Employment Relations.
As this is normal practice and in line with the local legal framework that regulates the ‘mediation’ and conciliatory process in Malta, MUBE reiterates that the Union only seeks mediation when there is serious disagreement and/or stalemate.
MUBE has also advised HSBC management that the Bank’s unwillingness to collaborate has fuelled much unwarranted speculation amongst the workforce about whether the bank has serious intentions to reach agreement.
