Alitalia-aircraft and transport: unions confirm the Italian strike of next May 21
"24-hour stop more than ever confirmed"
"The Italian 24-hour air transport strike on May 21st is more than ever confirmed", Filt Cgil, Fit Cisl, Uiltrasporti and Ugl Trasporto Aereo unions reported it, that in the past few hours have brought together the assets of all the delegates of the sector and Alitalia, recalling that “the strike of the most representative unions of the sector will involve pilots and flight attendants of Alitalia, Blue Air and Blu Panorama, maintenance technicians and ground staff of carriers, handling and catering staff and airport management. Enav employees are excluded”.
"As demonstrated by the great presence of yesterday in the assets of air transport workers, ground, pilots and flight attendants, -the trade unions continue- the strike is not only confirmed, but is strongly desired by the workers for the serious situation in which this sector is pouring in Italy, despite the fact that the number of passengers is growing strongly, due to the renewal of the national collective agreement, for supporting legislation that makes it the minimum regulatory and salary reference for all air transport workers in Italy, for financing structural of the air Transport Solidarity Fund, to give a certain future to Alitalia workers”.
"The sector's situation, which is strategic for the Country, continues to experience a marked division: on the one hand, a steady growth of passengers and flights and on the other side a proliferation of bankruptcy situations. At the base of the strike, the Alitalia situation, arrived at the final phase of the extraordinary administration procedure without letting anything predict, beyond the declarations of intent, a closure without impact on the work, in terms of redundancies and cuts in labor costs. In addition there is the solidarity fund in the sector, which has made it possible to manage past crises and which must serve to accompany those in progress, which is reduced by the Government's provision on pensions, over time and in economic quantity. There is also no concrete national legislation to support the sector, which contrasts the contractual dumping and which foresees the implementation of the sector contract and clear rules, to safeguard employment and wages”.
"The strike -Filt Cgil, Fit Cisl, Uiltrasporti and UGL Trasporto aereo lastly remember it- will involve, with the exception of air traffic controllers, all the operators in the sector, pilots and flight attendants, maintenance technicians and ground staff of the airlines, the people in charge of handling, catering and airport management".
