“The final motion was unanimously approved and the new management team elected: with 88.9% of the votes the outgoing secretary Gianluca Montanari was the most voted. It is the last act of the 16th Congress of the CDLS which closed the flying Wednesday evening at the Palace Hotel in Serravalle “.
This was announced in a press release. “The final motion summarizes three days of very intense debate, with over 30 speeches by the delegates and video contributions by trade unions and experts, who recalled the proposals, contents and programmatic lines contained in the congress theses.
The themes of contract renewals, the strengthening of the welfare state, starting with public health, and integration with the European Union are central. There is also space for the issue of the reorganization of the banking system and the very serious delays of justice in ascertaining responsibility for bank failures. In the final motion, the CDLS Congress then thanked the health personnel, health care personnel, the police and all those who guaranteed essential services in the midst of the pandemic.
There are many requests addressed to the Government and to the public. The “indispensable need to defend, relaunch and strengthen the public health system, which must be strengthened with investments in human resources and new professional skills”, was stressed. The need to overcome “the pandemic emergency and restore normal operation of the hospital, territorial and social health structure as soon as possible: the inefficiencies that are heavily penalizing citizenship will no longer be tolerated”.
The final document then underlines the value of the Public Administration as a “cornerstone for the relaunch of the San Marino economy”, with a key role within the “Country Project” that the CDLS hopes to be defined as soon as possible in a transparent and shared manner. Highlighted “the importance of the manufacturing sector which has always been the engine of the economy and employment, the production sector for the development of the country”. The development of the San Marino industrial sector and of the whole economy in general “must necessarily be oriented to the strategic choices made by the European Union regarding digital transition, energy transition, sustainability and resilience”.
The request to the Government – also communicated directly to the Secretary of State for Labor, who spoke at the opening evening – was strongly reiterated to ratify the ILO Convention 190/2019 on the elimination of violence in the next Great and General Council and harassment in the workplace; request already made by the Women’s Group of the CDLS at the hearing with the Excellency Regency last 8 March, repeated on several occasions and inexplicably neglected yet unheard.
A strong reference is dedicated to the issues of environmental sustainability and energy transition, in order to counter the effects of climate change: “For the Republic of San Marino it could be a great opportunity to be a convinced international promoter of all environmental issues, becoming a in a short time the first totally green country “.
Having emphasized the principle that “the ability to unite must be an essential perspective for those who have the responsibility of representing workers and pensioners”, the CDLS affirms that the “development of social achievements resides in the precious value of unitary action. There is a need to check the status of unitary relationships with the aim of making decision-making processes more fluid and effective, increasing organizational efficiency but, first of all, sharing the idea of a development model that gives more dignity and rights to work “. Pursuing the unitary spirit, the CDLS also proposes “the opening of a confrontation between all the trade unions especially on the major structural reforms necessary for the relaunch of the country and on the definition of platforms for the renewal of expired employment contracts”.
“In the light of a consolidated economic recovery – underlines the document – the platforms for the renewal of employment contracts, will include in consideration the dynamics in flation, safeguarding the purchasing power of wages and salaries especially in a context in which a recovery of the ‘inflation”.
