Reasons to Propose a Law on Non Self-Sufficiency

Articolo scritto da:

The pensioners’ unions Spi-Cgil, Fnp-Cisl and Uilp-Uil have decided to promote an act on non self-sufficiency. The reasons for this choice stem from the need to prevent, contrast and accompany this phenomenon which is on the rise, involving more than 2,800,000 Italian citizens and their families. The national government has not yet provided a suitable, effective response to requirements stemming from the «risk» of non self-sufficiency, leaving the system of local autonomies and individuals to cover the expenses resulting from the phenomenon. The matter has enormous impact. The act proposes a project to deal with the phenomenon starting from everyday life scenarios; prospecting a definition of non self-sufficiency and assessment modalities, indicating essential rights and guaranteeing their homogeneous application throughout the country; proposing an individualised plan, integrated services and a system to make care workers providing services to the non self-sufficient responsible. The national in-tervention plan proposed is supported by a national fund for non self-sufficiency financed through general taxation and capable of giving a concrete response to social essential levels.only subscribers can see the full article

Unions (and) Welfare in a Historical Perspective

Articolo scritto da:

The article deals with the relation between union action and the development of welfare, from the first forms of union health assistance down to the more recent changes that are affecting labour regulations. The first part reviews some of the main national experiences that accompanied the development of health assistance along with the first programmes for social protection on the cusp of the XIX and XX centuries. This means examining the expansionist period of Fordist welfare, concentrating on the forms of union involvement in the functioning of the national welfare states. The analysis continues, looking at the changes that marked the crisis of Fordist welfare and the reform processes connected with the new paradigm of active welfare. In particular, it considers the changes that concern union action in the new framework of activation processes, with reference to the practices and forms of involvement - Ghent system/bilateralism - that seem most responsive to the need to reinforce the active intervention of the unions in the labour market.only subscribers can see the full article

The long march in the trade unions: from enrolment as immigrants to involvement as workers

Articolo scritto da:

In Italy there are now about one million immigrant workers who are trade-union members. Various researchers have spoken of an Italian peculiarity in this connection, due to the particular commitment of the Italian unions to helping and accompanying migrants in the process of social, administrative and political integration, in which it is often difficult even to exercise their recognized rights. The article brings out how this success, in a context of profound changes in the labour market and employment structure, now makes it particularly urgent for the unions to face the problem of meeting the growing request for participation that is emerging from the immigrant component of Italian workers.only subscribers can see the full article

Achille Passoni

Articolo scritto da:

I want first of all to dwell on some questions that were dealt with today by the Minister for Social Policy, Paolo Ferrero, which, quite honestly, I find difficult to share. First of all, the question of the Social Policy Fund. The resources to transfer to the Regions in 2007, compared with those transferred in 2006, have indeed increased — and we much appreciate this — but only to an extent equal to the cuts made by the previous government last year. That means that the Fund now stands at the same figure as in 2004. Substantially, there has been no additional investment since then down to the end of 2007. And this means that social policies and combating poverty are not seen as a priority by the new Centre-Left government. The Minister will agree with me that this is not at all good news. only subscribers can see the full article

Unions and Change Process. Interviews with Trade Unions Leaders

Articolo scritto da:

The following pages contain a series of structured interviews carried out in September and October 2008 and give an important picture of the current situation of the Italian unions. The interviewees are Susanna Camusso, Confederal Secretary Cgil, Dept of Productive Sector Sector Policies; Carla Cantone, General Secretary of Spi-Cgil; Franco Martini, General Secretary of Filcams-Cgil; Morena Piccinini, Confederal Secretary Cgil, Dept of Welfare and New Rights; Giorgio Santini, Confederal Secretary Cisl, Dept of Labour, Training and Development in Southern Italy; and Claudio Treves, co-ordinator of the Dept of Labour Policies in the Cgil. The interviews are organised in two parts: the first, common to all the interviews, consists of two general questions on the subject of representation and the efforts and real capacity of the unions to see and interpret the post-Fordist socio-economic changes in the perspective of building up a welfare system; the second has three different questions for each interviewee on more specific matters and union dynamics connected with bargaining and the new role of local bargaining, the identity of the unions and their specific role in European policies. only subscribers can see the full article

Re-assessing Filcams' Working Time Bargaining Model

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
Times and Hours
The article gives an historical overview of Filcams bargaining intervention on working time from the 70s to today’s challenges. In all the various phases, the sector’s structural and organisational situation and the aspirations of the workers (in prevalence female) have played a crucial part in the proceedings. The «negotiated» flexibility on working time, its distribution over the week, month and year becomes the main instrument to respond to various requirements and to contrast through negotiation the use of work precariousness. In this perspective the experimentation of working time self-management is a coherent evolution and represents a new frontier.only subscribers can see the full article

Welfare According to Bruno Trentin

Articolo scritto da:

Bruno Trentin’s text, discovered and introduced by Michele Magno and reprinted in Rps exemplifies the reform proposals of the welfare state he advanced as head of the Planning Department of the Cgil and discussed at its national conference in 1995. The introduction recalls the wider cultural context and the values present in Trentin’s thought. The central idea is that of a welfare society, in which a logic of compensation is replaced with a logic of citizens’ rights. In particular, it examines the crisis of the insurance principle, which requires the transparent involvement of general taxation in financing social security. Its values of solidarity should be founded not only on income distribution, but above all on the offer of real goods and services to people. There is also an explicit appeal to the unions to think of welfare reform systematically, and not identify it almost exclusively with the question of pensions.only subscribers can see the full article

Betty Leone

Articolo scritto da:

I welcome the decision to devote a session of the seminar on health and welfare policies to issues related to a proper definition of informative system aimed to transferring knowledge among health workers, and from them to the general public, and vice versa. The debate is not new. On the contrary, it characterized the ’70’s and ’80’s in the period of health service reform and it was later taken up again during the discussions that led to the law (no. 328/2000) on welfare reform. Indeed, it is clear that this subject meets various needs. The first is that of identifying the needs to which we are to respond: this is an essential function if the services are not to fall into a merely self-referential logic rather than responding to the need to meet the general public’s requirements effectively. only subscribers can see the full article

Trade Union and Welfare State: Initiatives at a Local Level

Articolo scritto da:

In Italy one may detect quite a long, although largely unknown, history of diffused relationships between trade unions and local-level governments and institutions, which over time resulted in practices of union involvement in and contribution to the design and implementation of labor and social policies at the periphery of the Ir system. This phenomenon is largely dependent on the characteristics and limits of the Italian welfare system as a whole. The article discusses the phases and logics of this concealed history, focusing on their main features and outcomes. Two main phases and two main logics of action are pointed out. While in a first period - during the 1970s and 1980s - the initiative of the unions in the field of labor and social policies at the territorial level was essentially contingent and reactive in character, aimed at seizing opportunities and/or coping with emergencies, subsequently - during the last two decades - such initiative turned out to be more intentional and strategic in orientation, entering into the redefinition of the unions’ representative strategy targeted to specific groups of workers and citizens. only subscribers can see the full article

From Working Time Flexibility to Numerical Flexibility. Considerations on Government Action and Union Intervention

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
Times and Hours
The article examines the results of the application of law 30/03 in the light of trends in subsequent collective bargaining and the results of decisions made by the Cgil on the matter. Remarks are given on some inquiries conducted by Istat and other institutes on the influence of measures introduced by law 30 on the Italian labour market. The results obtained highlight that bargaining has mostly complied with the indications set by Cgil and that hints at a general weakening of Italian occupation are becoming visible, due mainly to the increasing rate of forward contracts, especially in the case of female occupation. It is thus necessary to radically modify current legislation.only subscribers can see the full article
