Strike in the port of Livorno, Uniport urges the unions to resume the dialogue

To attribute indiscriminately to entire categories the responsibility for behaviors that instead concern few entrepreneurial realities - underlines the representation of entrepreneurs - does not correspond to the real situation

FISE Uniport has invited the leaders of Cgil, Cisl and Uil to a further confrontation to overcome the crisis that led to the strike of the port workers of Livorno, "in order - he specified in a note the association representing the enterprises port - to bring the whole affair within the ordinary industrial relations and forecasting of the national collective labour agreement'.

Whatever the reasons, Uniport evidently lacks diplomacy, given that in urging trade unions to resuming the dialogue fails to point out that this takes place "at the end of a 'wanted' strike by the provincial trade union representatives of Livorno even after the openings of shipowners and terminal operators operating in the Labronico airport, on a dispute stubbornly carried out ignoring even the efforts and commitment put in place personally by the top management of the Port System Authority (to which they address a sincere non-formal thanksgiving)'.

An explanation of the responsibilities of the crisis to which, moreover, not even the President of the Authority had escaped of Sistema Portuale del Mar Tirreno Settentrionale, Luciano Guerrieri, whom he had called an "incomprehensible denial what the trade unions have opposed to the umpteenth attempt of the AdSP to arrive at a truce in port", "thus giving the impression of having lost the sense of their mission in the inability to know how to identify the points of right mediation in a negotiation» ( of 20 September 2022).

"To continue to attribute indiscriminately to whole categories, shipowners and terminal operators, in such a phase difficult not only for Italy, the responsibility of behaviors that instead concern a few, individual realities entrepreneurial - uniport also underlined - not only is unfair and does not correspond to the real situation, but it is also dangerous. In this way the port reality is discredited Livorno just when it is necessary to offer certainties to the market and the fundamentals of the CCNL that remains are questioned instead, also for the employer, an element of certainty and guarantee'.

"For this reason - continues the note of Uniport - we address to the trade unions stipulating the contract the request to reconsider the proposals made by President Guerrieri and the his staff with serenity also in a hoped-for meeting with the same negotiating delegations but according to consolidated procedures and shared. In the meantime - has specified the association of port companies - we are available to the AdSP for concrete begin the general review of the execution modes of port work, leaving to the same Authority the the task, assigned to it alone, of the correct implementation of the dictates of the law on contracts and contracts between arts. 16 and 18 ex law 84/94 in the port of Livorno'.

Meanwhile, today the mayor of Livorno, Luca Salvetti, and the councilor municipal at the Port, Barbara Bonciani, met a representation of striking workers in the port of Livorno on request for a delegation of the workers themselves. Communicant of the meeting, the municipal administration highlighted who "hopes, and will commit, as far as in his prerogatives, that a solution of the dispute be reached in time rapid, also in order to avoid economic and social effects on the entire port and city community of a slowdown of work especially in a phase where the labronico maritime port has significant volumes of traffic to exploit for growth employment and overall production of all subjects in game».
