Too much flag waving on Article 18, Italian bishops-update 2

Galantino says issue less central than real problems of jobless

(see related) (ANSA) - Vatican City, September 26 - Monsignor Nunzio Galantino, the secretary general of the Italian Bishops Conference (CEI), said Friday that there was too much "flag waving" in the debate about the government's labour reform bill.
    The Jobs Act features controversial changes to Article 18 of the Workers Statute protecting staff from unfair dismissal.
    "The Church thinks that it's necessary to look at the people who don't have jobs and are looking for work with more realism," Galantino said. "The debate about Article 18 yes or Article 18 no is less central and I see too much flag waving".
