(ANSA) - Rome, July 19 - The head of Italy's largest labor
union CGIL said there would be a public-sector strike to oppose
the government's hotly contested 26-billion-euro package of
spending cuts and sell-offs.
CGIL and fellow union UIL will launch "a general strike of
the public sector against the umpteenth measure," said Susanna
Camusso Thursday at a rally in Rome.
The cuts, which among other things aim to avert a 2%
increase in VAT scheduled for October, include a 10% reduction
of staff and 20% reduction of managers in Italy's large public
administration, as well as trimming benefits such as meal
vouchers.
Labor unions have called the measure "a meat cleaver to
public services".
The measure, which will go before the House at the end of
July, was approved by the cabinet earlier this month.
