Federation campaigns for more jobs and better pay in early years education

Italy

The FP-CGIL public services federation organised a day of action to raise serious concerns about the state of early years education. As reported by EPSU, the federation has called for an extraordinary recruitment campaign, for investment in skills and training of staff and to raise awareness among families of the difficulties that educators encounter in carrying out their work, above all because of staff shortages. The union says that huge investments are due to be made in the next few years to provide new places in educational services, but these are not being matched by a an appropriate recruitment plan for educators. FP-CGIL is clear that in order to make the sector attractive, workers have to be offered stable contracts and decent salaries. As well as Rome, action took place in Pescara, Asti, Novara, Siena, Milan, Turin, Rome, Genoa, Palermo, Bari, Rimini, Reggio Emilia, Pesaro-Urbino.
