Italy -Trouble at ILVA plant continues -March 20, 2013

The ILVA steel mill in Taranto, the factory with the highest number work-related deaths in Europe (see also the February Newsletter), has registered the death of yet another worker, the third person to die at the factory in the space of a mere four months, while a colleague is in a serious condition. The future of the plant is uncertain and ILVA has ordered 6417 workers to be laid off and put on a reduced, public compensatory wage. In this way, ILVA forces the state to pay the workers’ salaries, even though the production stoppage was directly caused by negligence of its board.
