Almaviva, Miccichè will write to the national government for the safeguarding of jobs

The workers of Almaviva do not stop and to seek a solution to the complex dispute that sees them at risk due to the passage of Ita’s customer service to the Covisian call center company, today they went to the president of the Sicilian Regional Assembly, Gianfranco Micciché.

A trade union delegation, made up of Slc Cgil, Fistel Cisl, Uilcom Uil and Ugl Telecomunicazioni went to represent all the concerns of 570 employees, employed in Palermo, who do not yet know what the future awaits them. The meeting was also attended by the leader of the Democratic Party, Giuseppe Lupo, and the Forza Italia parliamentarian, Mario Caputo. “President Miccichè – explain the trade unionists Marcello Cardella, Francesco Assisi, Giuseppe Tumminia and Claudio Marchesini – has undertaken to write to the national government. And not only on the Almaviva dispute, but more generally on the failure to comply with the rules on social safeguard clauses. A precedent that risks having major repercussions on several sectors of the Sicilian economy “. This afternoon, in Sala d’Ercole, among other things, two agendas relating to the dispute will also be discussed. “Not only to sensitize the regional government – says Lupo – but also to undertake those actions that may be the responsibility of the regional parliament and which are useful for keeping attention on the matter”. Meanwhile, in the meeting that took place yesterday in Rome between the company and sndacati, the positions remained distant: Covisian, according to union sources, said it was willing to hire about 380 employees by April 2023. While about 60 operators are not coming own weights in consideration by the company because “directly connected to Millemiglia Alitalia”. Too long times and too few numbers for workers’ representatives who will continue to struggle to find a more favorable solution. Hoping not to have to wait for “the disaster” and to have recourse to the posthumous measures proposed by the Regional Councilor for Labor, Antonio Scavone.
