Italy -Further strike action planned in private waste sector -January 6, 2012

The FP-CGIL public services federation along with the three other federations in the private waste sector (FIT-CISL, UIL TRASPORTI and FIADEL) is planning two further days of strike action on 16 and 17 January, following the one-day strike on 29 November last year. A central demand in the dispute is maintenance of the sector agreement, which is under threat as a result of demands to liberalise the industry. Another issue is safety at work in the sector. The November strike had a high turnout, with the support of an estimated 80% of workers. A meeting with employers on 1 December did not resolve the dispute (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 4 November 2011).
