Abstract: The General Workers’ Union has formulated a policy document outlining its stance on the controversial issue of migrant workers in Malta. Framing the situation within Malta’s European context, the union outlines a number of difficulties relating to this issue. The recommendations of the European Trade Union Confederation and the Pan-European Regional Council of trade unions serve as a platform for the proactive approach advocated in the document. In September 2008, the General Workers’ Union (GWU (, Malta’s largest trade union, published a policy document entitled Migrant workers (in Maltese, 260Kb PDF) (, outlining the union’s position on the issue of immigrant workers in Malta. According to the GWU paper, the steady influx of migrants without work permits from the north African coast threatens to destabilise the working conditions and standard of living which Maltese workers have managed to acquire over the years.
