The organization Forum Unions Maltin, says it supports the EU work-life balance directive and wants the Maltese government to implement its proposals.
The U.M. states that the proposed directive which was approved by the European Parliament and Council, ‘sets out the minimum entitlement,’ for leave for Maltese parents and carers.
The directive, led by MEP David Casa, would provide a number of new rights to parents and carers across European Member States.
The union body now believes, ‘it is now up to Government in discussion with social partners to seek the implementation of the best model which will see improved parental leave and measures supporting the family.’
