Once again the workers of ATM [Milan's local transport company - tr.]
have decided autonomously to cease work with the aim of saying "no" to
the national agreement signed on the 20th December 2003 by the
confederal unions, the government and the company. The aim of the local
transport workers is to re-open discussions at a national level to
enable us to receive the long-agreed €106 wage increase against
inflation and around €3,000 back pay. The local transport workers of
Milan are refusing and localized discussions which cannot resolve the
situation regarding a national labour contract which provides less
money and we have no intention in trading off our work breaks in
exchange for "advances" of our own money. The local transport workers
believe that the much-spoken-of consultation referendum is useless as
it is offensive towards the sacrifices which the striking workers have
made. We believe that the extremely high participation in these strikes
is the only true referendum.

The local transport workers of Milan

* [Ed. Note: This statement was issed today by the local transport
workers of Milan, autonomously self-organized, and accompanies a
wildcat strike which has blocked all public transport in Milan today.
This strike follows a national transport strike last Friday, 9/1/04,
which, though officially called by grassroots unions, saw mass
participation by members of the 3 confederal unions who made an
agreement with the government to accept half the wage increase and back
pay which had originally been agreed in the national labour contract
they themselves signed with the government.]
