Time.news – The Gkn does not back ups: the decision to close the factory in Campi Bisenzio and to lay off the 422 employees who work there is taken and does not change. “The negotiating precondition of revocation of the dismissal procedure cannot be accepted, given the closure decision taken“, says the company that owns the plant on the outskirts of Florence in a note where 422 workers risk losing their jobs. The company, which will sit at the table with the institutions and trade unions on Wednesday in the prefecture in Florence,” rejects the accusation of having refused any ‘dialogue’, having on the contrary solicited it on several occasions within the procedure activated “.
“The idea that multinationals and companies can behave in this way cannot pass in our country. We need to have legislation that prevents these things from happening again. This is not a territorial and local battle, this is rightly a national battle that must have responses on the legislative level, and therefore also with the intervention of the government “, he said. the general secretary of the CGIL, Maurizio Landini, which, on a visit to the plant, announced the decision of Fiom of Florence to file “an article 28” for anti-union behavior, “precisely because we contest the procedures and the non-compliance with agreements and trade union bargaining in our country that the fund did”.
“The meeting”, Landini reported, “went well, first we had a meeting with the company RSU then an assembly with the workers present. The message we will bring to the table is very precise: let’s ask, since it arrived. today the new call of a table for Wednesday 4 August in Florence, the withdrawal of layoffs and the resumption of production activities at Gkn. We hope that the Government will play its part to the full: saving the workers, this is our goal to achieve “.
