The Health Section within UĦM will, from Monday 24th November 2014, order industrial actions to all Paramedic Aides.
This is due to the fact that UĦM and the Ministry for Energy and Health had agreed that these employees can carry over their leave to next year due to the fact that they could not use all of their leave because they are understaffed.
Apart from this, the Union had, for the previous months, been discussing with the Management ways for these employees to be empowered. This is due to the fact that UĦM was recently given the sole recognition of these employees. The Union was proposing that their salary reflects their qualification and their responsibilities. Moreover, UĦM was proposing incentives for these employees to increase their skills.
To date, the management has failed to provide another meeting to discuss and implement these needs.
