Protest motivations and demonstrations
The USB has reconvened for today the 24-hour strike which was initially scheduled for September 29th. Protest at the center of a tug of war between the union and the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Matteo Salvini, who with an injunction had ordered the reduction of abstention from work from 24 to 4 hours. In response, the USB decided to postpone the strike to October 10th and confirm it for 24 hours, from 8.30am to 5pm and from 8pm until the end of service. “A day of mobilization which sees the tramway drivers taking to the streets and demonstrating their dissent. A day, which for all the tramway drivers turns into a great commitment for the right to strike in essential public services after the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Matteo Salvini, has precepted the workers for the day of mobilization on 29 September”, underlines the USB.
In Rome the demonstration will take place at 11 am under the Ministry of Transport; in Venice, Mestre, garrison from the Vempa flyover “where twenty-one citizens and the driver Alberto Rizzotto died in the absurd accident on Tuesday evening”. Squares which, says the USB, support the national strike in the sector which aims to question the policies of this government. A strike that demands decent wages and working conditions; the elimination of contracts and subcontracts to private companies that offer poor quality services and underpaid work; the introduction of the crime of homicide at work; the minimum wage by law is 10 euros per hour; a strike that wants to highlight the need to fight the current law on the regulation of strikes in essential public services which in an increasingly aggressive way wants to nullify the category’s conflict by preventing the exercise of the right to strike”.
