Rome, June 24 - Premier Enrico Letta had two hours
of talks with the leaders of Italy's three big trade-union
confederations on Monday to discuss the country's jobs
emergency.
Letta has said combatting unemployment is the top priority
for his left-right government, which took power in April, as
Italy's jobless rate has hit a record high of 12% and around
four in 10 young people aged 15-to-24 are out of work.
The Italian premier successfully lobbied for this week's
summit of European Union leaders to focus on youth unemployment.
The government is hoping to pass a package of measures to
combat youth unemployment at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday so
Letta can show it is leading by example at the summit in
Brussels later in the week.
But the big unions, CGIL, CISL and UIL, have expressed
doubts about how effective those measures will be and accused
the government of delivering words instead of action at a joint
rally in Rome on Saturday.
