Chamber rebutts Unite

It is farcical to see Unite the Union attacking the Chamber of Commerce to try and deflect from its own hypocritical blunders. The Chamber has been on record campaigning against illegal labour and calling for a level playing field on many occasions. The Chamber is also on record in supporting private sector pensions. The difference is that, unlike Unite, the Chamber of Commerce does not seek to bring Gibraltar to a standstill to further its...

Chamber to BCA workers: Do your job!

The Gibraltar Chamber of Commerce is calling on the members of Unite the Union working for the Borders and Coastguard Agency (BCA) to do the job they are paid to do and stop inconveniencing members of the public, tourists and businesses with their selfish and thoughtless work to rule.

In the past, the Chamber of Commerce has raised issues concerning policing matters directly with the RGP both in meetings and in correspondence to little or no effect. The fact remains that, whether the RGP chooses to admit it or...

Chamber calls for more visible police presence

Following several complaints from Chamber members and members of the public generally over the summer, the Gibraltar Chamber of Commerce is calling for a much more visible police presence in Main Street, Casemates and other pedestrian areas.  With heightened security concerns in recent months certain measures and procedures have been introduced to protect the public.  Although these have caused additional costs to many local businesses our members have adjusted their operations accordingly. What is disappointing though is that there has not been a concomitant increase in police presence to...
