Unions make progress on consolidating bargaining in private care

Italy

The Fp Cgil, Cisl Fp and Uil Fpl public service federations have brought two collective agreements in private social care together and are working on consolidation with a third. The unions have signed the agreement for the period 2020-22 covering the National Association for Public Assistance (ANPAS) and the National Confederation of the Misericordie d'Italia, secular and religious providers of health, social care and other services. The aim is to create a single sector agreement covering providers of social and health assistance, medical transport and emergency out-of-hospital care. The next step will involve negotiations for the three-year period 2023-25 together with the Italian Red Cross. The ANPAS- Misericordie agreement unifies pay scales and introduces significant improvements to maternity and parental leave. There is a one-off payment of €450, paid to full-time worker to compensate for missed increases for the years 2020 and 2021, with pro-rata payments for part-time workers.
