Italy -Auchan workers on strike -May 07, 2015

Nationwide strike as workers protest against management’s unilateral decision to withdraw the collective agreement and implement large scale layoffs.

Unions at the Italian branches of French owned retailer Auchan have called a nationwide strike. The workers are protesting against management’s unilateral decision to withdraw the collective agreement and implement large scale layoffs. Unions are demanding a social dialogue, as well as a halt on the layoffs. Union representatives said the company’s current financial difficulties are not the result of the crisis but of risky investment strategies that should not be passed on to the workers.
