The CGIL, CISL and UIL trade unions representing civil servants have filed an appeal with the courts over the government's freeze on contracts, including pay increases, for public-sector workers. The unions said proceedings are beginning at the Court of Rome level but they expect the case will reach the Constitutional Court for a ruling on the unions' challenge to the legitimacy of the government freeze. More than one year ago, unions warned of social conflict over the freeze on contracts that dates back to 2010.Earlier this month tens of thousands of public service workers marched through Rome to demand that the government give them better pay and a new contract and take measures to boost employment. The demonstrators demanded higher salaries and a new national contract for the sector, which has not been renewed for four years.
