CGIL announces 16 hours of strikes against labour reform (see related story) (ANSA) - Rome, March 21 - Italy's biggest trade union, the leftwing CGIL, said Wednesday that it will hold 16 hours of strikes against the government's planned labour-market reforms, which include moves to make it easier for firms to dismiss staff.

CGIL chief Susanna Camusso has said her union will do "everything necessary" to stop the package, which has won broad backing from the country's business associations and more moderate trade unions.
