Italy -Budget cuts lead to rolling strikes -October 16, 2013

The trade unions have announced rolling strikes in transportation, education and public service sectors in response to the 2014 draft budget approved by the coalition government, while Confindustria criticised proposed cuts to the cost of labour. The unions reacted negatively to planned government spending cuts and a continued freeze on public sector wages. Confindustria, the central business association, said the budget went in the right direction but was insufficient to promote growth with inadequate proposals to cut the cost of labour. Prime minister Letta stated that details would be ‘up to parliament and the social partners’.
