Italy -Unions demand public sector social dialogue -August 01, 2015

Public sector unions have demanded the reinstatement of collective bargaining in the public sector. The government is in the process of reforming the public sector, but has so far refused to enter into dialogue with trade unions. Public service federations FP CGIL, CISL FP, UIL FPL, and UILPA have organised a protest on 29 July to reiterate the call for social dialogue and warned more actions will follow.
