At the end But reverses: the company that manages the collection of waste a Roma removed the word “illness“From the text of the agreement with the trade unions for break down absenteeism during the extraordinary cleaning of the Capital in a delicate period of the year such as Christmas holidays. The bonus, exactly as before, will be there for whom will postpone the holidays but only with the objectives achieved, that is roads cleared from waste. Initially, however, the prize of 360 euro it was also foreseen for those who did not take days off due to illness: a decision that caused scandal to be screamed at, because many saw some form of donation to ex “crafty“Redeemed by money. Ama said she was ready for a clarification last Saturday, with the controversy exploded. The mayor himself announced the incoming clarification, Roberto Gualtieri, who running for cover had explained: “Since the paragraph on this point can give rise to confusions, the company informed me that the text will be spelled out to avoid any misunderstanding“.
This year, on average, the absences in Ama they settled around 15%, of which a fluctuating percentage between 8.2% and 9.2% due to illness. Among the prerequisites of the agreement on the extraordinary cleaning of the city there is also the decrease in “absenteeism”, as the sole director of the company clearly explained, Angelo Piazza. The agreement, which will bear the more fruit the more employees are available to work in the Christmas time giving up to holidays and leave, provides for an “additional bonus, commensurate with the remaining 3 million” allocated. Among the conditions for the recognition of this benefit there was also the passage finished in the viewfinder and then changed: “The reduction of sickness absence rate of at least 10% (at least in the months of December and January) compared to the percentage recorded in the months of September and October 2021“.
If Ama’s new management deems it necessary to reduce “absenteeism”, the unions point the finger at the interpretation of the agreement: “Reward who works more, discouraging absences of all kinds. Unfortunately the message has passed, manipulated, that we want to reward the crafty of the diseases, despite it being exactly the opposite ”, thunders from the CISL Marino Masucci. The “distorted interpretation” also speaks of CGIL according to which “Ama pays in terms of absences comparable to illness, the high average age for non-recruitment in recent years and occupational diseases. Reduce these factors should be the structural commitment of the next tables “. But now the circular provides the official interpretation.
“A Christmas Rome will be more clean how we found it and the objectives of the plan will be achieved ”, promises Gualtieri. According to the mayor, however, “this is only a first step, it will take more time to reach the standards of excellence that we set for ourselves”.
