Rome, March 25 - Trade union leaders on Monday
called on centre-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani to focus on the
real economy if he manages to form a government.
Bersani met trade unionists and business representatives as
part of talks after Italian President Giorgio Napolitano gave
him a mandate to try to form a government in his role as the
leader of the coalition that came first in last month's
inconclusive general election.
"It's necessary to stop the crisis the economy is going
through and the country's decline," said Susanna Camusso, the
head of Italy's biggest trade-union confederation, the left-wing
CGIL.
"So the emphasis should be put on providing answers for the
world of work.
"A government of change is needed that starts to deal with
the real economy and people's situations," she added after
meeting Bersani.
Outgoing Premier Mario Monti's emergency technocrat
administration eased concern on the international money markets
about Italy's ability to weather the eurozone crisis but his
austerity measures deepened the country's recession and pushed
unemployment up to record highs over 11%.
Camusso said she had requested that the unpopular IMU
property tax introduced by Monti be lifted for less wealthy
households - those that currently pay 1,000 euros or less in IMU
a year.
