TGWU Factions ‘bury the hatchet’

Nursing section dispute - TGWU yesterday announced that the “unfortunate” discrepancies that existed between the Union leadership and the caretaker Nursing Section committee have been resolved and that any further differences will be discussed internally.

In a statement the Union said they had now agreed to resume talks with the Gibraltar Health Authority management on the pending claims issue, “in order to find a satisfactory solution.”

A TGWU spokesman said:

Branch Officer Charles Sisarello and District Chairman John Cabezutto met Michael Netto and the rest of the committee, and both sides agreed the negative effect that the public airing of our disagreements was having on the members. We have now agreed to discuss any further differences within the organisation.

The role of the TGWU officers and that of the Nursing Committee have been clearly defined. When we have concrete proposals and having reached a stage of no progress in the negotiations, we will meet with the members affected for a decision on the matter.

Once this situation has been clarified we look forward to the future with the hope of establishing the need that the Union has to speak with one voice. We regret any inconvenience caused to the Union membership during this unfortunate episode and will shortly be announcing an election for a new Nursing Section Committee.
