Health and care unions to strike over private employer organisation’s refusal to negotiate


The FP-CGIL, CISL-FP and UIL-FPL public service federations have called a one-day strike on 27 September to put pressure on the AIOP employers’ organisation to return to negotiations over the sector agreement covering private residential and care homes. The three unions normally negotiate with AIOP and ARIS, the employer organisation representing religious providers. AIOP, however, is aiming to negotiate a different agreement with the UGL trade union – an organisation outside of the three main confederations and with links to the far right – and the unions argue that this flies in the face of commitments made to negotiate with the three federations and ARIS. The unions will mobilise over the coming months in the lead up to the strike around the key demands that they will put forward as part of the negotiations.
