In-Naz­zjon and De La Rue em­ploy­ees

Malta Independent - - DEBATE & ANALYSIS -

When, in Novem­ber 2015, De La Rue had an­nounced the downsizing of its work­force by 300 em­ploy­ees, Si­mon Busut­til’s In-Naz­zjon of 23 Novem­ber 2015’s main front page story read: ‘Id-De La Rue se tkecci mi­jiet ta’ had­diema’ ( ‘De La Rue in­tends to sack hun­dreds of work­ers’).

But when the same com­pany has just an­nounced that af­ter dis­cus­sions with the Gen­eral Work­ers Union and the gov­ern­ment, it had de­cided not only to keep the same work­force but in­tended to in­crease it to 500 em­ploy­ees, I could not see one word about this very pos­i­tive an­nounce­ment on the front page of In-Naz­zjon.

As if the PN are only in­ter­ested in sto­ries which may cause con­cern and grave prob­lems to work­ers and their fam­i­lies.

And Si­mon Busut­til and his mot­ley crew seem to be of­fended when the PL ac­cuses them of be­ing al­ways neg­a­tive in the way they re­act to what hap­pens in our coun­try.
