The UHM has expressed concern over recent internal movement of workers within Enemalta, "that are occurring without any consultation".

The UHM has written to the Executive Chairman of Enemalta plc and asked several questions regarding uncertainties concerning employees. This, "after attempts were made to organise a meeting with management," a UHM representative said.

"The questions asked primarily dealt with employees' take-home pay, asking whether  workers and their families will have this income guaranteed".

The Union also asked whether allowances or payment tied with shifts will remain intact and whether Enemalta intends to transfer workers to government entities and departments and if so, under what conditions.

The Union said that it is also awaiting a response as to the basis of these transfers, and the criteria used. "We expect that no worker will be forced to undertake a transfer and as such we ask if this adopted policy is a 'take it or leave it' policy".

UHM is also informed that while there might be workers transferred to other entities, Enemalta is outsourcing work that until today used to be done by Enemalta employees.

"The UHM's aim is to defend its members who work for Enemalta and under no circumstance will accept any form of discrimination or loss of conditions for its workers".
