Italy: Electrolux and unions sign agreement on strategy out of the crisis
Planet Labor, 18 March 2013, n°7383 - www.planetlabor.com

On March 9, the social partners at Electrolux signed a unitary agreement suspending the staff cutting program the group had announced for 2013-2015 via solidarity contracts (working time cuts) and appeal to extraordinary Cassa Integrazione (the social damper compensating the income of workers affected by a restructuring/retraining procedure). Unions say this solution should be used by other ailing large businesses to maintain competitiveness and employment. The agreement will be subject to a workers’ referendum and will be validated on March 22. Stefano Zoli signed the agreement as national Fiom-Cgil coordinator at Electrolux and agreed to tell Planet Labor about the details of this agreement. (Ref. 130182)
