Italy - Strike against labour concessions at Fiat - January 28, 2011

In reaction of the agreement that Fiat reached on 23 December 2010 with two unions for investing in the Mirafiori plant in exchange for labour concessions, FIOM, the CGIL-affiliated metal union federation, staged an eight-hour nationwide strike. On Friday 28 January, protests were clearly at hand in Rome, Turin, Milan and Cagliari. Addressing a crowd of some 10,000 people on the square facing Milan's Cathedral, FIOM secretary-general Maurizio Landini called again for a general strike, to fight against what he said was the undermining of the country’s national contract system (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 July-August, September and December 2010).
