Distant parties and a not quite relaxed atmosphere at the meeting between the government and trade unions on the maneuver, in particular on the pensions issue. In the meeting at Palazzo Chigi, the parties remained quite distant and no agreement was found. At the table, the Prime Minister, Mario Draghi, and the general secretaries of Cgil, Cisl and Uil, Maurizio Landini, Luigi Sbarra and Pierpaolo Bombardieri. For the government also the Minister of Economy, Daniele Franco, the Minister of Labor, Andrea Orlando, and the Minister of the Public Administration, Renato Brunetta, with the undersecretary to the presidency of the Council, Roberto Garofoli. Therefore, there are still knots to be solved on the new ways of accessing the pension once Quota 100 has been greeted.
Bombers: “The meeting didn’t go well”
“The meeting did not go well”: there are “only 600 million on pensions. There are no answers on the overall reform needed. The union will evaluate forms and means of mobilization in the coming days to make adequate choices”, said the secretary general. of Uil, Pierpaolo Bombardieri, at the end of the meeting at Palazzo Chigi on the maneuver. Before the meeting, Bombardieri had said: “We will propose again, which we have been doing for six months, a structural discussion on the welfare reform in this country. If then the road back to normality were to be that of the Fornero reform, we will not be on this issue. we are. We remember the letter that Draghi sent and that started the Monti government, the conditions today have changed. The reform cannot change at every electoral round “.
Landini: “Without answers we will evaluate mobilization initiatives”
“If on Thursday the government confirms this approach, in the next few days we will evaluate unitary mobilization initiatives”, said the leader of the CGIL, Maurizio Landini after the meeting at Palazzo Chigi on the maneuver, responding to those who ask if the union is also evaluating the general strike . “It’s clear what we said tonight, no one can say they didn’t understand,” he said. “It is not acceptable that the work created is precarious. We are in the presence of fixed-term contracts of a few months, of temporary work. It is no longer acceptable that growth continues to produce precarious work”, he added.
Bar: “Insufficient resources”
“In the meantime, we have raised a question of method. This Stability Law risks going ahead with great shortcomings and imbalances, due to the lack of dialogue and confrontation with the social partners”. Thus the general secretary of the CISL, Luigi Sbarra, at the end of the meeting at Palazzo Chigi. “On the merits there are lights and shadows”, but the resources are “largely insufficient” both for pensions, for social safety nets and for non self-sufficiency, says Sbarra confirming that “in the next few hours we will decide how to give rise to the unified mobilization” of trade unions.
Towards extension of the Woman Option and Ape social extension
Meanwhile, on the sidelines of the meetings in progress in these hours on the maneuver, government sources have learned that the extension of the Woman Option and the extension of the Social Ape to other categories of heavy workers should arrive with the budget law. The restoration of the tool for advancing women’s pensions and the expansion of the social Ape are among the proposals of the Minister of Labor Andrea Orlando, supported by most of the majority parties.
