One of the longest and most difficult labour disputes at Acciai Speciali Terni (AST), a steel factory owned by the multinational German group ThyssenKrupp has come to an end. AST workers voted by an 80% majority to approve the agreement negotiated by the trade union representatives and the company management. The company has revised its plans to reduce steel production at ASTI; it will keep two furnaces running for at least 4 years with a guaranteed production volume. There will be dismissals, but only on a voluntary basis. The position of outsourced third-party companies is still under negotiation.
