Unions continue campaign for more funding


(June 2017) The three main public serivce federations, FP-CGIL, CISL-FP and UIL-FPL, have welcomed  proposals to increase funding for provincial and city authorities following their protests last month. However, they say that it falls well short of what is needed to invest in infrastructure, schools and cover salary increases. For 2017 alone estimates put the funding shortfall at over EUR 600m when the government has increase provisions to only EUR 170 million. The unions say they will continue to mobilise and campaign for the increased funding.
