Taranto, January 23 - The president of the troubled
ILVA steelworks in southern Italy warned Wednesday that the
company could put as many as 8,000 workers on indefinite leave
in the next few days if the plant was not fully reopened.
According to labor union sources, Bruno Ferrante said
6-8,000 workers' jobs now hang in the balance after a judge in
Taranto ruled Tuesday that a government plan to avoid a closure
of the ILVA steelworks, violates some articles of Italy's
Constitution.
In a statement Tuesday, Patrizia Todisco said two of the
law's articles "are in strident contrast with the Constitutional
principle of separation of State powers".
A law decree passed late last year was designed to make it
possible for the embattled steel plant to continue operating
while it conducts much-needed clean-up measures.
But rather than implementing the decree, the Taranto
prosecutor's office this month filed a complaint in
Constitutional Court against the government for conflict of
powers between judiciary and State as well as violation of the
Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.
On Monday Italy's environment minister and the ILVA
steel company publicly pressed for the Taranto judiciary to
release its grip on the embattled ILVA steel plant in the
Italian southern port city.
By Wednesday no clear resolution to the deadlock was in
sight.
