Top Italian union says austerity 'strangles' world of work


(see related stories)
Terni, November 14 - CGIL chief Susanna Camusso
said Wednesday that excessive financial rigour was strangling
the world of work as her left-wing trade union led Italian
anti-austerity protests on the continent-wide European Day of
Action and Solidarity.
"Austerity is strangling labour and impoverishing the
country, not shaping the future," said Camusso, who is at the
helm of Italy biggest trade-union confederation.
"We are appealing to the government, which is slavishly
following a line of austerity that is creating a very deep
recession and taking away any hope of work," she added in the
Umbrian town of Terni, where she was taking part in one of 100
demonstrations being held throughout Italy.
CGIL called on its members to stage a one-day strike to
protest at cuts and tax hikes passed by Premier Mario Monti's
emergency government of unelected technocrats.
Camusso also blasted the two other big Italian trade-union
confederations, CISL and UIL, which are more moderate and did
not call strikes on Wednesday.
"You shouldn't run away from the (protests on the)
streets," she said.
