“The government stops beating around the bush”
The FPI USL is to urge the Executive to speed up a response on the temporary employment contract and the Enlarged Public Sector contract. For several months now the Executive has been beating around the bush in responding to the legitimate requests of the workers, postponing the start of negotiations each time. Certainly not virtuous behavior of the Government which by now can no longer escape from providing concrete solutions for eliminating the precariousness in the Enlarged Public Sector also in light of what has been done for the ISS in 2020. Particular attention also with regard to the renewal of the contract on which the employer of work will not be able to refrain from carrying out a renewal that goes to recover what is lost in over a set of missed updates. Involvement of workers in choices, training, economic adjustment for the loss of purchasing power, recognition of the risk and inconvenience for the exercise of a specific activity, adjustment of the rules in terms of health and safety in the workplace, meritocracy and professional development: these are the main cornerstones on which for USL the confrontation with the Government will have to focus and on which the same will necessarily have to make concessions. One of the objectives must, in fact, be to place public employees in the effective conditions to be able to provide adequate and rapid responses to the needs of users. The new collective bargaining agreement must also be the time for a careful analysis of waste and shortcomings that are unfortunately still too present and on which the Executive will be called upon to turn its attention. Shortcomings also in terms of the rights of employees who today often do not see their professionalism recognized or cannot fully enjoy contractual contracts – such as easier forms of part-time, better treatment between life and work times or a longer extended application of smart working: tools which, by promoting organizational well-being in the workplace, will consequently favor greater efficiency.
