MUT calls off MCAST strike following understanding on way forward
The MUT has today met again with the MCAST management, with the latter submitting another financial proposal for the Collective Agreement. This proposal is still not acceptable by the Union but following an understanding on the way forward for the negotiation of this financial proposal in the context of the whole Collective Agreement, the MUT has agreed to suspend the full-day strike which was planned for Friday 15th December as a gesture of goodwill.
During the meeting, the MUT and MCAST also agreed to continue negotiations as from this Thursday, where they will be agreeing on a schedule of meetings that will lead to the conclusion of the negotiations. However, to avoid having a repeat of the situation whereby MCAST continued to drag its feet and find excuses to refrain from adhering to agreed commitments, all directives will remain in place unless otherwise notified.
