Times: GWU national congress: Muscat speaks of minimal budget as Gonzi urges economic realism

6.10.9 by Kurt Sansone

[Excerpts from the article.]

A budget without higher taxation was the "indispensable minimum" in the current economic climate, Labour leader Joseph Muscat told General Workers' Union delegates during their national congress yesterday.


Earlier, delegates heard GWU president Victor Carachi give his union's nod to Renzo Piano's Valletta entrance regeneration project, insisting it would create jobs and economic activity.


Delegates approved five policy papers on gay workers, gender equality at work, wage policy, data protection and migrant workers.
