Abstract: The year of the foundation of the Malta Union of Teachers, 1919, was a particularly hard one for Maltese workers. During the First World War the cost of living had risen sharply while wages and salaries had risen little or not at all. Unheeded by the Colonial Government of the time, the workers' discontent finally exploded in the riots of June 7, which claimed four lives. After the riots, a Commission was appointed to review the salaries of Government employees. In its report, published on November 5, 1919, the Commission recommended increases for all Government employees - except teachers.
