The reasons for the strike In the communiqué with which they communicated the mobilization, the Cobas underlined how with the pandemic the European Union has passed “from restrictive policies to expansionary policies”, while the Italian PNRR and other countries do not mark “a turning point in public use and of the huge mass of money “. For this reason the grassroots unions ask, among the points of their claim, “the reduction of working time with the same salary to combat unemployment due to the computerization and robotization of production”, the European minimum wage, an extended universal income also to migrants and the “relaunch of the welfare state”.
