Bishops call for talks to end transport strike
The bishops of Malta and Gozo have urged both parties in the public transport dispute to hold talks and resolve the issue in the interests of common sense and justice.
Archbishop Paul Cremona and Bishop Mario Grech in a joint statement said they were aware of the hardship being felt by the workers, their families and the people and they were urging everyone to keep calm and respect public order.
They also expressed appreciation that the hearses were back in operation so that the deceased could be buried with dignity.
They also urged the faithful to pray for a fair solution to the dispute.
