Nurses' union rejects Health Ministry's mediation attempt KURT SANSONE THE nurses' union has re- jected government's offer for mediation as industri- al action in hospitals over failed collective agreement talks is leaving patients worse off. Malta Union of Midwives and Nurses President Paul Pace said the government's move is an attempt to stop industrial action without coming back with mean- ingful counterproposals. "The proposal for medi- ation does not make sense because the union has nev- er closed the door to nego- tiations and government, so far, has not told us that what it offered during the last meeting held last week is its final offer," Pace told MaltaToday. Government yesterday called for a conciliatory meeting with the nurses' union and asked that in- dustrial action be suspend- ed pending mediation. The Health Ministry said patients were suffering as a result of the industrial action.
