Italy -Union federation campaigns around negotiations over savings -September 14, 2011

The CISL FP federation reports on its campaign to get involved with public authorities in measures to improve services and cut out waste. In the wake of the Parliamentary vote on the 2011-2014 budget law, that includes among other provisions the threat of another freeze of national collective agreements in the public sector until 2014, CISL FP has intensified actions in order to obtain a commitment from public authorities to involve workers and their representatives in a comprehensive process to tackle spending inefficiencies, optimize work organization to improve service management and delivery, and so retrieve money that can be redistributed to public workers through second-level bargaining.
