The Malta Employers’ Association is organising a discussion session for its members at the MEA premises on the 31 October 2018 about wage inflation in Malta. Many members report that they are finding it difficult to source human resources and that there is a strong pressure on labour costs. During this session we will be looking into various aspects of the situation, including the engagement of foreign nationals, the impact of rent and housing prices on wages, labour mobility, employment with the private sector, collective bargaining and others.
The session will start at 2pm and will include a number of workshops. The outcome of this session will set the ground for formal research which will be conducted by MEA on the salient points raised.
The programme (tentative) shall be as follows:
2.00 pm Registration
2.30 pm Opening remarks
2.40 pm General Discussion
3.15 pm Workshops:
