Cargo workers clash with police at IKEA during protest


Piacenza, November 2 - Protesters clashed with
police at an IKEA warehouse in Piacenza Friday over a contract
dispute with cargo workers.
A scuffle broke out at the gates to the warehouse after
demonstrators tried to prevent other employees from crossing the
picket line and entering the premises.
At least 12 people were taken to hospital with injuries.
The cargo workers, represented by the Cobas trade union,
are not employed by the Swedish furniture giant directly but by
a third-party service provider working on IKEA's behalf.
The third party is expected to abide by strict contractual
conditions set out by IKEA but the protesters say these are not
being respected.
Piacenza Mayor Paolo Dosi, the city counsellor responsible
for labour, Luigi Rabuffi, and the Egyptian consul to Italy are
attempting to mediate in the dispute.
Many of the protesting porters are Egyptian nationals.
