“It was a very useful meeting to establish a working method”; “there is an understanding on these issues”. The premier said so Mario Draghi on the occasion of the meeting at Palazzo Chigi with general secretaries of Cgil Landini, Cisl Sbarra and Uil BombardieriMinisters Orlando and Brunetta and Undersecretary Garofoli were also present.
During the meeting with the union leaders were identified some interventions of immediate feasibility regarding the protection of safety and health in the workplace, we learn from sources of Palazzo Chigi. In particular: – on the revision and strengthening of the training system for employees and entrepreneurs; – the revision and strengthening of the sanctioning rules to be applied following inspections; – rationalization of the structure of inspection responsibilities; – the establishment of a single database of the sanctions applied.
The one with the trade unions was a “useful and fruitful, concrete meeting. Medium-term and other immediate interventions were defined. I think the object of discussion is important but also the defined method, there is agreement to work in this direction. “or for a continuous discussion with the social partners,” and it is necessary to reiterate that we start, not by chance, from the issue that must be addressed before any other “, namely that of accidents and deaths at work. So the minister Andrea Orlando, at the end of the meeting.
There was no mention of a minimum wage during the meeting. “The government told us that today’s agenda was on health and safety, we asked to discuss other issues and then we started a discussion”, says the secretary of the CGIL. Maurizio Landini, at the end of the discussion with the executive. The trade unionist recalls that ” we have for some time pointed out the question concerning the overcoming of pirate contracts and we are raising the issue of giving a general validity to national contracts signed by more representative trade unions. And within that scheme for us it means not only guaranteeing the minimums of national employment contracts but also guaranteeing everyone’s rights in the work ”.
Of the minimum wage ”, the government today did not mention or raise any issue. If it was for the government, today we were discussing health and safety. Point. Other topics were discussed because we asked to discuss ”, he explains. The executive, Landini continues, were asked some topics, including “the verification of the agreement that we made at the time on the dismissals, we raised the theme of the famous legislative intervention on relocations, which we have never discussed, we asked for activate a discussion to start a discussion on the merits “.
According to the trade unionist ” the most important things that have been decided today concern the fact of merging the databases. They are the condition to be able to get to the points license, to have company data and therefore to be able to deal with the issue of who can participate or not participate in calls also based on what is the history of health, safety and accidents ”. The problem to be faced, according to Landini, concerns ” the recruitment to be made both for the labor inspectorate and for local medicine. There is a need to make thousands of recruitments in the inspectorate. On this there was a commitment to move ”.
” We have been informed that in the next few days the Council of Ministers will deliberate the Nadef. We reiterated to the government the need that on the budget law, and therefore on the points it will have to address, from the social safety nets to the tax reform, to the pension reform, we asked for the government’s commitment to a preventive confrontation, which also involves the social partners’ ‘he said again.
During the discussion, the topic of investments and the NRP was also addressed. ” The government – explains the trade unionist – has undertaken, in the next few days, to convene a special meeting, to start this work that will lead to the definition of this protocol which we consider very important ”.
” The government shares the need, urged by us, to work to build a national strategy to combat accidents in the workplace, occupational diseases and injuries. This long trail of blood that takes nearly 1,600 people away every year is not acceptable. ” This was stated by the secretary of the CISL, Luigi Sbarra, at the end of the meeting with the government, which he defines as ” positive ”. ” We need a strong intervention aimed at countering this hateful phenomenon of deaths in the workplace ”, he underlines.
” There are first interventions that will be put in place immediately, a strong willingness of the government to speed up the recruitment procedures of 2,300 inspectors, technicians, engineers, to strengthen the army to be engaged in the territory and in the workplace, with the ‘aim to strengthen inspections, checks and controls”, explains Sbarra. ” It is an important signal ”. But, continues the trade unionist, “we have said that it is not enough, because even after retirements the contingent in charge of checks and controls on the national territory must be further strengthened”.
On the part of the executive, says the secretary, “there is a willingness to work immediately on the intersection of databases, to put together synergies, skills, experiences, aimed at managing this phenomenon”. ” A national database is born, which will facilitate the task of the government and the inspectorate, the regions, Inail and the local health authorities themselves ”.
