Unions to work more closely over migrant workers

Unions from Malta, Italy, France and Portugal have pledged to work more closely to promote migrant workers’ rights in the Mediterranean area.

At a meeting in Malta Monday between the Maltese General Workers’ Union, Italy’s CGIL, France’s CGT and  Portugal’s CGTP, the unions exchanged ideas and experiences and discussed both the impact of the political upheaval in north Africa and the Middle East and the global financial/economic crisis on welfare systems and unemployment.

The EU was criticised for links with authoritarian, undemocratic regimes in North Africa and the Middle East and its failures with respect to migration towards the EU caused by ‘rebellion and poverty’. www.cgil.it
