Public-sector workers stage one-day strike

Unions demand collective contract renewal, fresh recruitment

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 9 - Many of Italy's public-sector workers took part in a one-day strike on Wednesday.
    The strike was called by unions to demand the renewal of the civil servants' collective contract, which expired late in 2018, and call for a large-scale recruitment drive and improved workplace safety.
    The strike is not affecting essential services provided by local authorities and the national health system.
    However, some non-urgent appointments may be postponed.
    Civil Service Minister Fabiana Dadone said she has called a meeting with unions on Thursday to discuss the contract renewal.
    Dadone said the the question should not just be about money but also about the "valorization of the personnel". (ANSA).
