Italian union calls for taxes to be dropped on '13th salary'


(ANSA) - Rome, September 3 - Italy's biggest trade union has
called for taxes to be dropped on the extra salary that the
country's workers and pensioners are paid in December to help
boost weak consumer spending.
Susanna Camusso, the head of the left-wing CGIL union, said
the move could be financed by money raised from the fight on
rampant tax evasion in recession-hit Italy.
Camusso told Rome-based daily La Repubblica that the
government needed to show a "signal of discontinuity" with the
policies it has pursued up to now and "give a little more money
to the workers".
The CGIL has been highly critical of many moves made by
Premier Mario Monti's emergency administration of non-political
technocrats, especially its public sector cuts and reforms of
the labour market to make it easier for firms to fire workers.
Camusso said Italy's unions may call a general strike if
the government does not give "answers" to their concerns.
Italian workers' and pensioners' salaries are paid in 13
installments, with an extra one on December to help with the
spending families traditionally incur over the Christmas period.
