Abstract This paper explores the latent power of Maltese trade unions
in the private sector by reviewing the presence of collective agreements
in force in 2008. The study adopts a similar methodology to one
published in Bank of Valletta Review in 1996, based on 1995 data. Over
this 13-year period, the number of private sector collective agreements
in force has dropped from 212 to 168; the number of full-time, private
sector employees covered by collective agreements is slightly higher
(22,879 as against 22,128); but the proportion of the same employees
covered by collective agreements is lower by 6.2 percentage points
(from 32.9% to 26.7%). The data invites a sober reflection on the power
of trade unions in contemporary society.
