Italy - Firefighters take action over cuts and contracts - July 21, 2010

Firefighters organised by the CGIL, CSIL and UIL public service federations were involved in a national four-hour stoppage on Tuesday 20 July. The unions organised the protest in response to government plans for budget cuts and demands to conclude a new collective agreement, as the previous one expired two and a half years ago.
