Alcoa worker on tower falls ill


Cagliari, September 6 - A worker from the Alcoa aluminum
plant at Portovesme on the Italian island of Sardinia
who climbed to the top of a 70-metre silo on Tuesday has fallen
ill and may have to be removed, doctors said on Thursday.
The man, who suffers from a heart condition, climbed the
silo with two other workers in protest over plans by the
American aluminium giant to shut down the smelter and put
hundreds of jobs at risk.
Doctors who climbed the silo Thursday morning are
evaluating whether or not the man can be transported down the
tower safely.
The protest came as a delegation of workers and union
representatives met with the leaders of the three parties
supporting the government of Premier Mario Monti in Rome to
discuss the dispute on Tuesday.
It also anticipated a series of initiatives in Sardinia
leading up to a demonstration in Rome on September 10 involving
hundreds of Alcoa workers, local administrators, trade unionists
and ordinary citizens.
On Monday Italy's economic development ministry announced
that hotly disputed work to begin shutting down parts of the
Alcoa plant had been halted pending the outcome of a possible
takeover deal with Swiss multinational Glencore.
Alcoa has promised to keep all workers at its Portovesme
plant employed through the end of the year.
