“Change at the top of the CDLS National Pensioners Federation: after 12 years Armando Stacchini leaves the helm to Pier Marino Canti. The new secretary was unanimously elected during the first meeting of the board of directors after the 8th Congress of the FNPS-CDLS.
Just designated – a note reads -, the secretary Pier Marino Canti has indicators of the main commitments written in black and white in the final motion of the congress, starting with the enhancement of welfare for the elderly: “We fully agree with the proposal launched by the CDLS from create a specific fund to support non self-sufficient pensioners, an instrument financed with a modest contribution from all pensions. Fund that must have legislative legitimacy and be controlled by the social partners “.
Regarding the pension reform, the new secretary Canti he points out: “The principle that the social security reform be balanced, shared, and sustainable, guaranteeing a decent pension treatment, which often proved to be a precious economic resource from which the younger generations have drawn, and the pension treatment must be directly correlated to the working and salary path of the worker and the worker “.
The pensioners of the CDLS also “they strongly reject the hypothesis of linking the social security treatment paid to income indicators possibly introduced, as well as they condemn any reform proposal that promotes the introduction of extraordinary taxation on assets, both movable and real estate. “
Another proposal is that of creating a “Helpdesk for listening”, because, explains the new secretary FNPS-CDLS, “loneliness and social abandonment are the main enemies of the elderly population, real diseases that aggravate any pre-existing clinical situation “. For this it is necessary “a synergy between public and private, involving public welfare associations and those of the voluntary sector to create a real help desk available to all lonely people in difficulty”.
The commitment to bring the elderly population closer to the use of new technologies also continues through “a digital literacy campaign aimed at citizenship, paying particular attention to the older sections of the population”.
The work of the board, coordinated by the president of the 8th Congress Giovanni Giardi, ended with the election of the new Federation Secretariat, which is composed as follows: Pier Marino Canti (Secretary), Armando Stacchini, Giordano Giovagnoli, Marinella Bacciocchi, Sandro Serra, Felice Pavone, Marco Tura “.
