Maneuver, Landini vs Salvini: “The CGIL fights social inequalities”, “The strike is an act against the country”
“It is a phase in which it doesn’t matter what we say, what you do really counts and we want the workers, the young people, the retirees, to judge us for what we actually do and today we are asking the whole country to go on strike on the 16th, to be in the streets precisely because it is time to change and it is time for the world of work to be listened to for the problems it has made and for the effort it has made in this year and a half of pandemic “. Thus the general secretary of the CGIL Maurizio Landini at the demonstration against the financial maneuver organized by CGIL and UIL Puglia in view of Thursday’s strike, he launched his appeal.
“In particular, the South – Landini explained – it is paying double the price compared to what the rest of the country paid, never as now is there a need to make investments, starting with public administrations, because the real risk is not even being able to spend the money that has been made available by ‘Europe”.
“Then here there is a void, because the noon and the revival of the country – noted –they have disappeared from public discussion, we are no longer talking about it, while there is the risk of wasting a non-repeatable opportunity. This really means – Landini stressed – investing in infrastructure, services starting from educational ones, strengthening health care. And for example, the operation on the tax authorities to stop making companies pay IRAP means taking money away from the health service and this is the reason why we are against it “.
“From this point of view – concluded Landini – I believe that the mobilization and the decision to arrive at one union strike, in reality it derives precisely because we carry out a general function, we have in mind an idea of a country that is finally starting to protect those who are most in need “.
There was no lack of reference to the leader of the Lega Matteo Salvini, also there in Bari: “We represent millions of workers, young people, temporary workers, pensioners and therefore we have a vision that starts from the need to fight social inequalities and to put work back at the center as a fundamental right”.
In contrast, the League leader from the stage of the “Formula Puglia” event he declared: “The league is in Bari and in Italy to build: we got 8 billion in tax cuts for everyone, workers, pensioners, VAT numbers, freelancers; we got 4 billion to cut the electricity and gas bills. We are fighting to obtain a fund for autism and disabilities by working, committing ourselves, in the municipalities, the government, in parliament, the CGIL instead blocks the country “. “One general strike in such a delicate moment for Italy and the Italians it is really against the country – added Salvini -, against common sense, against workers. Instead, we are here to build a 2022 that leaves problems, worries and pandemics behind “.
Maneuver, Landini: “The majority did not open to negotiations with the trade unions”
Returning then to the reasons for the strike of 16/12, the general secretary of the CGIL Maurizio Landini, in the square in Bari he denied the possible openings of the government of which the Minister of Labor and Social Policies spoke Andrea Orlando. “The tax authorities told us that the game is over and the majority did not open negotiations with the trade unions. “” This is there for all to see. And the reason we called the strike (next December 16, ed) it is precisely because the game has ended and the majority came with us with a proposal that they did not modify “.
For Landini “that is not the basis of one tax reform worthy of the name, because in order to carry out the tax reform it is necessary to increase the deductions, the decontributions for workers, not one-off but structural, it is necessary to fight tax evasion, the financial income must be taxed properly – continued the secretary – and when a measure of € 100 a year of tax improvement for those who take up to € 20,000, and from € 6-7-800 to those with incomes of 3 or 4 times higher, it means that this is an unjust, unacceptable reform “.
Maneuver, Landini: “The method of government kills social representation”
“The theme today is to create jobs, because as long as young people and people are precarious they are poor even if they work they will not have a pension worthy of the name and this only increases suffering and social division”, he stressed. Landini. “On these elements we need a change, not formal, but substantial – he continued Landini -. Other negotiating tables have not yet begun and the method cannot be that the majority comes with the proposals already decided “, but must inform” what they intend to do. This is a way to kill social representation, not to involve the world of work in the choices that must be made “.
