The Medical Association Malta in a statement today, said that it has registered an industrial dispute, adding that it intends to issue directives to its members on Monday.
The MAM said that the dispute was registered on the basis of non-compliance with the current collective agreement in areas such as the implementation of career progression for a number of grades and the non-implementation of extra sessions for resident specialists.
The Association mentioned “illegal shifts,” saying that in Gozo a number of doctors have not been paid according to their collective agreement.
Retired consultants were also not being paid according to the collective agreement, the Association said.
Furthermore, it said, a number of calls for the recruitment of consultants had not been made despite their urgency.
The Union stated that it also has a dispute with the University over the collective agreement for staff in the Medical School.
