Italy -Unions mobilise for renewal of public agreement -November 02, 2015

The trade unions CGIL, CISL and UIL are demanding a 150-euro pay rise in the public sector, adding that they were ready to stage a general strike if they do not get a positive response from the government. The unions have announced a ‘very tough mobilisation’ in support of the renewal of public-sector contracts given that the resources lined up in the 2016 budget bill (200 million euros) are just ‘a tip’ and a ‘provocation’ that do not guarantee a dignified contract for public-sector workers. Many public-sector workers have been waiting six or seven years for the renewal of their contracts.
