The new agreement promises to improve the working lifestyle of Teatru Manoel employees
Teatru Manoel has signed a new collective agreement with the General Workers’ Union.
As a result of this new agreement, employees working at Malta’s national theatre will benefit from improved working conditions, including a family-friendly work culture, an increase in salary and a range of new salary structures to boost their career.
The collective agreement was made possible through the collaboration of the respective teams at Teatru Manoel and the General Workers’ Union, alongside the Minister for National Heritage, the Arts and Local Government, Hon Owen Bonnici and the Permanent Secretary Joyce Dimech.
“The wellbeing and rights of our employees are our priority, so I was eager to discuss this agreement with the General Workers’ Union soon after I became CEO,” says Teatru Manoel CEO Massimo Zammit. “I feel proud to have reached this agreement because we believe in good working conditions. After all, the greatest asset for any place of work is its employees.”
The General Workers’ Union is the largest trade union movement in Malta, with more than 46,000 members from various industries across the Maltese market including manufacturing, services and the public sector. It is a partner in the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), which are official confederations of the European and International Unions.
