Solid support for social care strike


(April 2017) The unions organising workers in private eldercare companies that are part of the Adaste employers' organisation reported very solid support for the strike on 27 March. The level of support was anything from 70% across the different regions with some local unions facing problems where employers refused to negotiate minimum service arrangements. The four unions - FP CGIL, Fisascat Cisl, Uiltucs UIL and UIL FPL, have rejected an employers' offer of a EUR 19 increase after several years of pay freezes and want an increase of EUR 110.
