Italy -Unions consider strike action over safety and job insecurity -November 11, 2011

The four main trade unions in the private waste sector, including FP-CGIL, are planning strike action over a new agreement as well as over safety issues in the industry. There has been a week of action from 6 to 13 November that involved an overtime ban and other action, while a day of strike action will be followed by two more if there is no response to the unions’ demands for measures to deal with safety and job insecurity in the sector. Safety is a major concern following deaths of workers in recent months.
