The WFTU Affiliate in Italy, USB, calls a 24-hour general strike of all workers on June 22, 2012 and a general demonstration in Rome and Milan! Solidarity Messages to be sent at: [email protected]
On its call to the Italian workers the Unione Sindicale di Base (USB) says:
“The Italian government is about to enact a law which further worsens workers’ rights and forms of protection in offices and factories. They envisage to cancel the ban to dismiss workers unlawfully and unfairly. Precarious employment is on the increase, whereas subsidies, allowances, benefits and forms of protection for those who lose their jobs are on the wane.
Together with other Italian struggle unions and confederations, we have called a general strike on Friday, June 22, 2012 to fight against this law, but also against the increase of tax pressures on workers and their families, and against the reform of collective bargaining and the State pension system: Two demonstrations will be organized in Milan and Rome. Do not give up!”
