Four injured in Sardinian Alcoa protest


(ANSA) - Cagliari, September 25 - Tension remained high in
Cagliari on Tuesday after workers at the threatened Alcoa
aluminium smelter in Portovesme clashed with law enforcement
officers outside the regional labour department office.
Four people - an Alcoa worker, a union representative and
two police officers - were reportedly injured in the clashes,
which broke out after Alcoa workers decided to stage a protest
in the Sardinian capital over the alleged lack of social
security guarantees for temporary workers and contractors.
The workers had earlier approached Labour Minister Elsa
Fornero with their concerns, but she replied that they needed to
take up the matter with the regional authorities.
Union representatives were due to meet with the
director-general of the regional labour department on Tuesday to
discuss the problem.
The government has been in talks with the American
aluminium giant and the unions to try and find a way to keep the
smelter in operation while a buyer is sought to take it on.
There have been several expressions of interest but nothing
concrete and Industry Minister Corrado Passera has described the
challenge of keeping the factory open as "almost impossible".
