GWU up in arms over Jazz Festival security tender

The GWU has strongly criticized the Malta Council for Culture and the Arts for stating that security services for the upcoming Jazz Festival cannot cost more than €6 per hour. The union said that such conditions promoted workers’ exploitation.
The condition was contained in a call for tenders issued by the council and also includes tax.
The GWU insisted that such conditions made it impossible for security firms to employ full time security personnel with normal working conditions. This, therefore, encouraged precarious, part-time employment or the engagement of workers with inferior working conditions, the GWU said.
The union has called on the minister concerned to withdraw the tender.
