Siena, anti-corporal pact: three action plans to beat exploitation in the area
Three action plans to bring out the exploitation and illegal hiring in the province of Siena: this is the result of the meetings of a working table set up as part of the Intese project (organized by the Prefecture) which set itself the objective of countering the serious phenomenon in the area.
Therefore, local action plans were brought forward which, a document explains, are programs “of concrete actions aimed at improving
local conditions and the quality of life of citizens, victims or potential victims of labor exploitation”.
There are therefore three thematic areas where the Pals have been developed: Emersion and taking charge; Living and transport; Training and job placement. Almost twenty instead the points that the project proposes to implement.
Among the goals to be achieved there are also: the creation of a multi-level inter-institutional network made up of PAs, law enforcement agencies, trade associations and companies that protect victims of illegal hiring; the creation of a permanent observatory which photographs the evolution of the phenomenon in the province; the activation of an ad hoc toll-free number where potential cases of exploitation can be reported; information and awareness campaigns for citizens.
As for housing policies, there is the intention of wanting to map empty or abandoned buildings, which can be exploited for urban regeneration, housing and cohousing projects. And always with this in mind, the Pals aim to find an agreement with Siena Casa to recover any lodgings.
However, the goals on the job side are no less important. There is in fact the will to carry on professional and civic-linguistic training courses for migrants. Paths that will be paid.
Among the subjects who collaborate in the realization of the Pals there are the bodies of the police forces, the Prefecture, the Province, Inail, Inps, the Labor Inspectorate of Siena, trade unions, trade associations, the realities of the local volunteering, the Sienese Aou, the ASL, the Senese SDS, the Alta Val d’Elsa SDS, the municipalities of Buonconvento, Castiglion d’Orcia, Montalcino, Monteroni d’Arbia, Murlo, San Gimignano, San Quirico d’ Orcia, Sovicille and Trequanda.
