Matteo Salvini had tried to ask for free tampons for unvaccinated workers, receiving a sharp denial from Mario Draghi, but now the trade unions are also trying to soften the position of the prime minister. However, he does not seem willing to give up: his line is clear, it is not right to favor no-vax who have deliberately not wanted to participate in the collective effort.
After the face to face with the Northern League leader, today Draghi received the trade unions at Palazzo Chigi, including Maurizio Landini, which expressed concern ahead of Friday, October 15, when the Green Pass will become mandatory for all workers: “We took the opportunity to report to the government – said the secretary of the CGIL – the need for a very strong lowering of the cost of the tampon and that the tax credit be strengthened to allow companies to face the recovery. Personally I think it would be a very important fact that all companies, not just some as is happening, should take on the burden of paying the buffer for all workers ”.
Luigi Sbarra, secretary general of the CISL, was also on the same wavelength: “On the Green Pass we asked the government to evaluate the opportunity to further reduce the costs of tampons and to support business and work on the subject of health and safety. The prime minister assured us that the government will decide in the next few hours also any initiatives in this sense “.
