Italy wins battle over EU job announcements (ANSA) - Brussels, November 27 - Italy on Tuesday won its legal battle against the publication job announcements in just three languages, English, French and German, in the European Union's Official Journal.

The European Court of Justice said on Tuesday that it had ruled that the practice was discriminatory and that the announcements must be published in all of the 23 languages of member states.

The decision came after Italy appealed against a 2010 decision that allowed the EU to publish job announcements only in English, French and German.
