Childcarers: Żminijietna appeals for decent conditions of employment

Żminijietna – Voice of the Left stressed that “although Government's provision for universal childcare services was a big step forward, conditions of employment need to improve and further regulation is needed".

“Żminijietna is highly concerned with the inferior conditions of employment that the workers in this sector find themselves in. Childcarers are experiencing low wages and precariousness in both the public and the private sector, and this is leading to a high turnover of workers"

"Government should ensure that wages in both the public and private sectors increase, so as to reflect the high level of responsibility that childcarers have in the education of children in crucial years of their personal development".

"Unionisation of childcarers should also be ensured without delay. Żminijietna supports MUT in its struggle to organize this sector and to improve the conditions of work. Workers should be allowed to choose full-time employment".

Stqarrija Stampa: Childcarers: Żminijietna tappella għal kundizzjonijiet diċenti tax-xogħol.

Żminijietna – Leħen ix-Xellug qalet li “għalkemm il-miżura tal-Gvern għal childcare centres  b’xejn għall-kullħadd kienet pass il-quddiem, l-kundizzjonijiet tal-ħaddiema għandhom bżonn li jitjiebu u aktar regolamentazzjoni hija meħtieġa”.

“Żminijietna hija nkwetata ħafna bil-kundizzjonijiet inferjuri tax-xogħol li l-ħaddiema jinsabu jitħaddmu bihom. Ħaddiema f’dan is-settur qed jesperjenzaw pagi baxxi u prekarjetà kemm fis-settur privat u dak pubbliku, u dan qed iwassal biex ħafna ħaddiema jitilqu dan l-impjieg”. 

"Il-Gvern għandu jassigura li l-pagi jiżdiedu kemm għal dawk li jaħdmu fis-settur privat u dak pubbliku, sabiex dan jirrifletti l-livell għoli ta’ responsabilità li għandhom 'childcarers' fl-edukazzjoni u l-ħarsien ta’ tfal fl-aktar snin kruċjali ta’ l-iżvilupp ta’ tfal”. 

"L-organizazzjoni ta’ ‘childcarers’ f’unjins għandha tiġi assigurata min l-aktar fiss. Żminijietna tappoġġja l-Unjin tal-Għalliema fil-ħidma tagħha biex torganizza dan is-settur u biex jitjiebu l-kundizzjonijiet tax-xogħol ta’ dawn il-ħaddiema. Żminijietna tesigi li l-ħaddiema għandhom jitħallew jagħżlu mpjieg full-time”.
