Public service federations mobilise over jobs and bargaining


The main public service federations - FP-CGIL, CISL-FP, UIL-FPL and UIL-PA - organised a demonstration in Rome on 12 December as part of a period of agitation to put pressure on the government to guarantee funding for the renegotiation of collective agreements for 2019-2021. EPSU general secretary Jan Willem Goudriaan joined the demonstration. The unions want to ensure there is funding for adequate pay increases and for the introduction of a new job classfication system. They are also calling for an extraordinary recruitment plan to address the urgent staff shortages across many parts of the public service.
