Cgil trade union meeting in Milan ends up in slaps, shoves (ANSA) - Milan, February 14 - Tempers flared at a regional meeting of the left-wing CGIL union, Italy's largest, in Milan on Friday after some ten uninvited members of another sub-union erupted on the scene, pushing and shoving those present. CGIL leader Susanna Camusso, who denied suggestions there might be a "schism" in the movement, urged likely new premier Matteo Renzi to "put jobs at the top" of his policy priorities. The 10 Fiom metalworking delegates started verbally attacking those present, and then moved on to slaps and shoves. "We will report the case to prosecutors," said veteran Fiom member Giorgio Cremaschi, saying the metalworkers were protesting against a recent deal on union representation.
