Rizzo: "Anti-union behavior towards workers, indifference, arrogance, total absence of dialogue with trade unions and lack of respect for the institutions. Get this group of birds of prey out of Taranto"
Thus in a note Franco Rizzo provincial coordinator USB Taranto: "If we look back we can only emphasize once again that Arcelor Mittal does not respect the agreements and tries to dictate the law, generating a climate of terror among the workers.
Formerly Ilva employees in AS arbitrarily excluded from the rankings, who were therefore denied, without valid reason, the possibility of being hired directly by AM; this is demonstrated by the sentence of the labor judge against the multinational, to which an anti-union conduct has been attributed. Direct workers are constantly under the sword of Damocles of the occupational threat. We only remember two of the layoffs of recent times: that of Z. believed to be the author of the "forgotten" colleague's video at 80 meters high on a Sunday afternoon in mid-February, and that of a few days ago in which another employee, FP , was put out because he expressed his thoughts on the lack of PPE in the factory on his Facebook wall. Consistent in its inadequacy Arcelor Mittal towards the contracting companies: for many of them, an autumn is far from rosy, with the risk of failure.
The fact that the plant managers are not interested in safety issues with reference to the maintenance of the systems that literally fall apart is certainly not secondary, thus seriously risking the lives of those who work there, but also with regard to polluting emissions and therefore the obvious repercussions on health and the environment. To this must be added an attitude of absolute disrespect towards the institutions, just think of how to relate to the Mayor and Prefect of Taranto.
We repeat it once again: Taranto asks to be respected. The government must immediately remove this group of birds of prey that is destroying the stability of the local economic fabric, compromising the lives of hundreds of families in the area".
