(en) Italy, CUB, Proclamation of a general strike by the private and public sectors throughout the national territory for the whole day of 18/10/2021 (it) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 25 Jul 2021 09:22:37 +0300

SUBJECT:The eight labor unions . proclaim the general strike which will affect all private and public sectors forthe whole day of 18/10/2021 from 00.01 to 23.59 - including the first upright shift forshift workers. ---- For the workers of the Highways the strike will begin at 10 pm on 10/17/2021 and will end at 10 pm on 10/18/2021. ---- For railway workers, the strike will begin at 9 pm on 10/17/2021 and will end at 9 pm on 10/18/2021. ---- The strike is called against the policies of the Draghi government and the European Union , which starting from the release of layoffs, the further liberalization of subcontracts and the use of PNRR funds, are configured as a gigantic work of social butchery on the skin of male and female workers, the precarious and unemployed, to the exclusive advantage of the ruling classes and international speculators, that is, those primarily responsible for the economic crisis and the health and social disaster we have witnessed in this year and a half of pandemic.
An offensive by governments and bosses that is accompanied by an intolerable repressive escalation against strikes and social struggles, which in recent weeks has repeatedly resulted in violence and aggression against workers and union activists.

The General Strike is convened for the following objectives and for the following reasons:
* against the release of layoffs and for the generalized reduction of working hours with equal wages, in order to counter the attack on employment and wages;
* for the relaunch of wages, with strong economic increases and with the establishment of a mechanism for the full protection of wages from inflation;

* guaranteed income through a guaranteed average wage for all unemployed; for free and universal access to social services and for a single system of social amortization that guarantees effective continuity of income and wages;
* contrast to precariousness and exploitation, abrogation of the Jobs Act, overcoming of contracts and contractual dumping and strong contrast to the indiscriminate use of precarious contracts;
* relaunching public investments in education, health and transport, against the privatization, commodification and dismantling of essential public services, fundamental sectors, public utility and infrastructures; against projects of differentiated autonomy and current forms of regionalization, for the equality of rights and services throughout the national territory;
* for a true trade union democracy, against the monopoly of concertative trade union organizations, to give workers the power to decide who should represent them; for the right to strike and the repeal of any repressive legislation that undermines and reduces its effectiveness, starting with the Salvini decree;
* to strengthen the safety of workers, inspection systems and the role of RLS;
* for the protection of immigrant workers and for the residence permit for all immigrants;
* against any gender discrimination and for true equal pay, employment and women's rights, in the workplace and in society;
* for the protection of the environment, the blocking of harmful productions and large speculative works;
* against the G-20 in Rome and the hypocritical catwalks of the masters of the world, for international unity and solidarity between the struggles of the workers and the exploited.

It will be the responsibility of the specific trade unions in the sector to send, where necessary, a different articulation of the strike as required by the regulations in force on the exercise of the right to strike in essential public services, including the methods of continuous strike and shifts.
During the general strike, the minimum essential services will be guaranteed as per Law 146/90 and subsequent amendments and additions.

Institutions are reminded to guarantee the respect of the information to users on the strike provided for by article 2 paragraph 6 of law 146/90 and subsequent amendments.

With best regards
