Italy - Steel workers block highway - January 31, 2016

A group of about 400 workers from troubled steel group ILVA staged a march that blocked a main highway interchange in Genoa. It was the second day of protests, following the occupation of the company's Cornegliano plant. The trade unions have accused the government of ‘ripping up’ a recent accord, and have asked a member of government to be present at a meeting to take place at the Ministry of Economic Development.
