Italy -Undercutting of health sector agreements -April 19, 2012

In a letter to the minister of labour the FP-CGIL, FP-CISL and UIL-FPL health union federations call for an urgent meeting to discuss collective bargaining in the private health sector. The unions are concerned about wage dumping in the sector after the AIOP private health employers’ organisation signed agreements in March 2012 with other, unrepresentative unions. FP-CGIL, FP-CISL and UIL-FPL argue that undercutting the main sectoral agreement will undermine pay and conditions and ultimately the quality of health services provided by private companies.
