Italy - Metal workers mobilise - April 30, 2016

On 20 April, metalworkers held a massive successful mobilisation during a four-hour national strike across the country. In many factories and offices activities remained completely blocked. Rallies and meetings were organised at almost 100 central squares all over the country. One the most successful mobilisations took place at Comer Industries (Reggio Emilia province) at the home company of current president of Federmeccanica (the Employers' Federation of Metalworking Industries). Some 90 per cent of 430 employees went on strike, and at GE Oil & Gas in Florence, the company where the current general director of the metalworking industry organisation of employers comes from, 70 per cent went on strike. The strike was a clear signal of support to the negotiations over renewal of the national contract for metalworkers.
