Rome, April 30 - The head of one of Italy's largest
labor unions on Tuesday rejected the idea of abolishing the IMU
real estate tax on primary residences.
Susanna Camusso, head of the CGIL union, said that her
movement as well as the other two main national unions, CISL and
UIL, were all agreed that "the idea of flat-out abolishing the
IMU on primary residences is not good, for it means that
resources will be taken away from more important policies".
"It is necessary to choose and say that you have to defend
people with only one house, not those who have 20 villas and 37
apartments".
Abolishing the IMU, an unpopular real-estate tax introduced
by the previous technocrat government of Mario Monti and meant
to help top-up local authorities' coffers, was one of the main
campaign promises of Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL)
party in the run-up to last February's inconclusive national
elections.
Modifying the IMU was one of the preconditions the PdL put
for its backing of the recently sworn-in government of Enrico
Letta.
Earlier Tuesday, Berlusconi reiterated that without moves
on the IMU, the PdL would not be able to support the new
executive.
