Italian Port Workers to Stage Strike on March 6th

Italian Port Workers to Stage Strike on March 6th

Unionized workers at Italian ports plan to stage a 24-hour strike on March 6th, 2015.

The strike, announced by union federations Filt-CGIL, Fit-CISL and Uiltrasporti, comes in the wake of announced reforms and ongoing dispute over the responsibilities between the Ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of Economic Development.

The unions claim that the new reforms would compromise quality and safety of workers, sailors, and users, benefiting companies without experience and expertise.

The current system should be kept as it guarantees the stability and qualification of labour, the unions explained in a joint statement, adding that the existing regulations on nautical technical services guarantee safety at Italian ports.
