Under the order from the Balearic government, all sides of the Balearic construction industry, including the unions, met yesterday for the first round of talks in order to improve safety and security. The construction industry has two months in which strict measures have to be introduced in order to ensure that catastrophes such as the Hotel Tivoli collapse never happen again. At the meeting was the Balearic Labour Minister, Eberhard Grosske who has been campaigning for tighter personal security and safety for the past year and the Balearic Chief Minister Francesc Antich. Emerging from the talks, Antich said that all parties around the table have agreed to co-operate: “the meeting was very positive.” “The negotiations will continue at a rapid pace and with the full co-operation of the government,” Antich said. Yesterday afternoon Antich met representatives from the colleges of architects and quantity surveyors who are also interested in participating in the negotiations. “We need everybody to feel part of the project,” stressed Antich. Grosske said that the talks are an important milestone because it is the first time the government and all economic and social sectors are involved in the safety and work issue. “We need to improve overall efficiency so that there is a maximum level of security.”
