ILVA steelworkers block roads in protest


(ANSA) - Taranto, August 16 - Labor unions in Taranto on
Thursday were holding a two-hour strike and protest march that
blocked major roads around the troubled ILVA steel mill that
faces possible closure amid severe environmental and health
"We feel it is necessary to keep attention focused (on the
plant) as we await concrete solutions to safeguard our health
and the environment, in addition to keeping our jobs," said the
FIM and UILM unions in a statement.
In July a judge ordered Europe's largest steelworks to halt
parts of its operations for endangering workers and nearby
residents with fumes and dust particles since 1995.
But the case has since bounced between courts as
prosecutors, local citizens and the Green political party have
fought to close the plant while the government and unions work
to keep it open as it undergoes a 336-million euro cleanup.
