Malta: Church calls for stronger workers’ unions
Catholic World News - February 04, 2011
The pastoral commission of the Church in Malta has issued a document calling for stronger workers’ unions.
“The Catholic Church has constantly agreed and supported the right of workers to unite and set up unions so as to safeguard their rights to a just pay and decent working conditions,” notes the document, which cites Popes Paul VI, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI. “It is important that one reflects on the Church’s position regarding unions in order that one would be able to discern how to strengthen these unions so with a view that these may spread and prevail for the benefit of the workers.”
