Health unions ready to mobilise in support of negotiations at non-profit provider

Italy

The Fp-Cgil, Cisl-FP and Uil-Fpl public service federations are ready to mobilise their members unless the management at the Misercordie non-profit health and social service provider responds to their main demands. The unions want a resumption of negotiations on the collective agreement which hasn’t been renewed since 2012. They argue that workers deserve a new agreement in the light of all the sacrifices made to cope with the pandemic. The unions are also calling for clarification of the state of the organisation in the light of the resignation of top management and press reports of budgetary problems and internal disagreements. Meanwhile, the three federations have come together with 17 other health unions to call for a rapid roll-out of COVID vaccinations and for trust in the vaccine as the only way to tackle the virus and in recognition of the massive efforts put in by health workers to deal with the pandemic.
