Govt will reassign all provincial staff says Madia

Criteria to be discussed with unions next week

(ANSA) - Rome, July 8 - Civil Service and Simplification Minister Marianna Madia told the Lower House Wednesday the government will reassign all staff made redundant after provinces are scrapped. "This process will obviously be easier in regions that have approved laws taking on formerly provincial functions," she said. "But we will proceed in all regions". The criteria for reassigning employees to new jobs "are contained in a decree as mandated by the 2015 budget," Madia said. "We will submit that decree to unions next week".
    The minister said last year that priority would be given to public employees with adult family members requiring care, children, or seniority. Civil servants earlier this year protested the plan to reassign "54,000 provincial employees" across Italy, according to a statement from the civil servant divisions of labor unions CGIL, CISL, and UIL.
    Madia said at the time she is willing to talk to unions reps.
