Maestripieri (CISL): “We must ensure the recovery of investments to aim for a finally robust economic recovery, based on more stable and quality jobs”. Magni (Camera del Lavoro): “Too many timed hires”
Genoa – Un positive and negative data for the world of work. The first concerns the growth, in the province of Genoa and in the rest of the region, of the number of new hires expected in January and February of this year, while the second concerns the type of contracts that are over 50% on time. determined. In the province of Genoa, in the first two months of the year, 15,880 entries into the world of work are expected (in 2020 there were 13,410) while at the regional level the new hires expected are, in total, 25,970, almost double compared to the same period last year ( 13,820).
The data emerge from the information system Excelsior, whose surveys are carried out by Unioncamere in agreement with the National Agency for Active Labor Policies. According to the president of the Genoa Chamber of Commerce, Luigi Attanasio, the numbers confirm that “Genoese companies are experiencing a positive and recovery moment. There is a lot of confidence but there are also many question marks, starting with the Covid emergency and the rise in the cost of energy, which is why the new jobs are mostly not permanent “. The sector that drives the economic sector more than all the other sectors is the industry where almost 8,000 new entries are expected at a regional level.
The forecasts of new hires are received with cautious optimism by the trade unions, even if the type of new employment contracts is worrying, which in less than half of the cases is for permanent employment. “These data, both in Genoa and in the rest of Liguria, are proof that we are facing an embryo of economic recovery whose effects are necessarily reflected on the world of work thanks to the active policies that we have been asking for for some time and which must be consistent also to withstand the fluctuating conditions of the pandemic », he says Luca Maestripieri, general secretary of CISL Liguria. He adds: «We must ensure the recovery of investments to aim for a finally robust economic recovery, based on more stable and quality jobs. We have to build good employment that goes hand in hand with good wages. The industrial vocation of the territory, also in anticipation of the implementation of the NRP, is an indisputable fact, on which as a trade union we emphasize the need for constant dialogue with institutions and companies “.
“A lot of professionalism is missing”
According to Igor Magni, general secretary of the Genoa Chamber of Labor, the data periodically proposed by Unioncamere “represent a useful tool for understanding what the demands of businesses are with respect to the need for specific professional figures. It is no mystery that the labor market in our country lacks some professional skills and for this reason it is necessary that research centers and universities in a special way constantly dialogue with companies “. “The weak part of the data – he continues – is instead that of the forecasts of assumptions: this analysis should be followed by another verification, namely on how many assumptions have actually been made, and of these how many for an indefinite period. The a posteriori data, which analyze the type of recruitment, have for some time now indicated the prevalence of contracts in fixed-term contracts or other forms of precarious work ”.
