Italcementi and trade unions renew talks

Print this page

Italy: Italian cement maker Italcementi and Italian trade unions are looking for a solution for the temporary lay-off scheme that will expire in January 2016.

At a meeting on 15 October 2015, the parties determined that it is not possible to extend the current temporary lay-off scheme and consequently they are studying alternatives that would allow wider coverage compared to the initial programmes.

In a statement the trade unions explain that one of the hypotheses could entail the use of the scheme for total cessation of the activities at the plants in Monselice and Scafa, already suspended for years, as well as the partial cessation for the plants in Castrovillari, Sarche di Calavino and Salerno that could be concluded in January 2017.

Besides, a temporary lay-off scheme may be decided for the remaining group's employees that could last until September 2017. The parties will meet again on 2 November 2015.
