Italy -Indefinite strike at ILVA plant -February 20, 2013

The trade union representing railway workers at the troubled ILVA steel plant in the southern port city of Taranto called an indefinite strike and revoked a 2010 agreement in a protest against safety and security issues arising from a reorganisation that was part of the November 2010 agreement. Last October an investigation was launched after a 29 year old worker at the plant was found dead near a locomotive engine inside the plant. ILVA has for months been at the centre of a major industrial and environmental dispute since a court in the port town ordered the shutdown of its smelting facilities and said that the steelwork was the source of an on-going environmental disaster.
