Employers threaten progress in private health negotiations


AIOP, one of the private employer organisations in private health care, angered unions by posing a major threat to continuing negotiations in the sector. The three union federations - FP-CGIL, CISL-FP and UIL-FPL - have been involved in intensive bargaining to try to reach the first new agreement in the sector for 13 years. However, they had to call an emergency meeting with regional health authorities and the ministry of health in order to get the negotiations back on track following an attempt by AIOP to insert a clause that would have enabled it to avoid certain aspects of the agreement on pay.
