Italy - Public sector unions plan national protest - November 30, 2009

The three main public sector union federations are all planning to protest against government policy on funding public sector pay. On 2 December the CISL FP and UIL FPL federations have called for a day of action demanding that the government honours agreements negotiated for the 2008-2009 period and ensures that funding will be available for the next bargaining round, covering 2010-2012. The FP CGIL federation has called a national public sector strike on 11 December with a specific demand of an increase of Euro 150 monthly over 2010-2012. The union has several other key demands including protection for women's and casual workers jobs.
