Italy - Private health workers still waiting for renewal of agreements - August 26, 2009

The 150,000 workers in the private health sector are still waiting for collective agreements over the years 2006-07 and 2008-09 to be renewed. The FP-CSIL public service federation has said that this is a priority, now that most of the other major agreements in the public services have been re-negotiated, particularly the public health agreement.

Over the summer the FP-CSIL, FP-CGIL and FPS-UIL public service federations have been looking at ways of making progress, for example, by putting pressure on the regional health authorities that sign contracts with the private sector employers. In July, the three federations wrote a letter to the Minister for Labour, Health and Social Policy, asking him to intervene in this long-lasting conflict.
