ILVA trade unions to meet with company management


Taranto, January 17 - Trade unions representing
Ilva workers are to meet with the management of the troubled
southern Italian steelworks company Thursday after a group of
laid-off employees protested in front of the plant headquarters
on Thursday, trade union sources said.
''We need to know what the company is deciding, how it
intends to operate, though at this point in time it is being
evasive and not holding relations with the trade unions,'' said
Luigi D'Isabella, Cgil trade union secretary general for the
city of Taranto, earlier in the day.
Ilva has been at the centre of legal and labour disputes
since last July, when a Taranto court ordered a shutdown of the
plant's smelting areas.
Months later, the court also sequestered manufactured
parts awaiting shipment.
ILVA appealed the court's seizure orders on the basis of
the government's decree, which permits plant operation at
partial capacity while ILVA undertakes well-defined clean-up
When the Taranto court rejected ILVA's appeal in late
November, the company declared imminent total shutdown of the
plant, sparking strikes and protest at its facilities in Taranto
and near Genoa.
The issue was temporarily resolved after Environment
Minister Corrado Clini introduced an amendment to the government
decree designed to overturn the Taranto court ruling.
The amended decree was overwhelmingly approved by
parliament in December. The Council Chamber of the
Constitutional Court must now decide whether the Taranto
prosecutor's challenge is admissible.
The Taranto prosecutor's office requested urgent review of
the case, but the Constitutional Court is under no prescribed
time constraints to do so.
