GRTU expresses its good intentions on the integration of ex-convicts in the labour market

During a Seminar organized by the Rise organisation entitled
‘L-Integrazzjoni tal-priġunieri fis-suq tax-xogħol: Xi jmiss?', GRTU Deputy
President Philip Fenech emphasized that the integration of ex-prisoners should
be regarded in all its complexity.

Each and every case must be assessed
separately and supported by the necessary services and structures provided by
the Authorities and the different NGOs. This should be aimed at preparing them
for not just the world of work but society in general in order to ensure that
they are comfortable and well integrated once released.

Mr Fenech specified that GRTU is all in favour of the
integration of ex-convicts into the world of work as everybody deserves a
second chance. The relationship with the employer in this process however must
also be catered for specifically. It must be transparent, disclosing of the
persons' past and emphasizing on how the person wants to work to be able to
give this person a chance to give a meaningful contribution. He also expressed
GRTU's intention to collaborate as would be required to support the businesses,
the Authorities, the NGOs and the individuals seeking integration.
