Italy - Unitary agreement in craft metal industry - June 24, 2011

There has been a new agreement derived from the unitary agreement agreed between unions and employers’ federations on on 16 June. It is a merger of all previous agreements (CCN’s) in the craft metal industry, facilities, dental labs and goldsmiths into one. Thus, it covers nearly 500,000 workers from 150,000 businesses. In addition to an average wage increase of €86, the agreement amends, among other things, the provisions on part-time work, fixed-term contracts, the integration contract and apprenticeship.
