Italy -Actions at Ilva Taranto continue -December 01, 2012

FIOM, the metalworking branch of the CGIL union, has organised a permanent general workers’ assembly inside the Ilva factory, the largest steel corporation in Europe. Those who had finished the shift were invited to stay, while those that were supposed to start the next shift were invited to come despite the work stoppage. 5000 workers are affected by the stoppage in Taranto. However, the shutdown was also extended to workers in Ilva factories in Genoa, Novi Ligure and Marghera. In total, 7500 workers have been affected. A strike has been announced for 29 November, combined with a manifestation in Rom.
