(ANSA) - Rome, September 10 - Tensions surrounding the fate
of the Alcoa aluminum plant in Sardinia continued to increase as
protests by workers and labor union representatives in Rome were
plagued by violent incidents on Monday.
A worker demonstrating in front of the labor ministry in
the capital was taken to the hospital after a firecracker
exploded near him on Monday.
Stefano Fassina, the Democratic Party's (PD) economy chief
who was pushed in a scuffle by angry protesters said that "the
government should have intervened much earlier (to assist in the
dispute)," and accused the government of abandonment (of the
workers).
The American aluminum giant's plan to shut down a smelter
and put hundreds of jobs at risk is at the center of a
high-profile, ongoing industrial dispute.
Alcoa has promised to keep all workers at its Portovesme
plant in Sardinia employed through the end of the year.
