Italy -Uffizi Galery workers strike illegal? March 25, 2015

400 workers asking for a social safeguard clause and maintenance of pay and contract conditions decided to go for a strike after the announcement by the heritage ministry of a reorganisation and privatisation.

The national strike authority has warned that a strike planned by trade unions representing workers at Florence's popular Uffizi Gallery would be illegal. Around 400 workers, providing services as the ticket office, the cloakroom and the bookshop decided to go for a strike after the announcement by the heritage ministry of a reorganisation and privatisation. Workers ask for a social safeguard clause and maintenance of pay and contract conditions. The authority called two days ‘excessive’ for a first action in the dispute and said that sanctions were possible if the unions go ahead with the walkout. The unions claim that they have been ignored for too long.
