Franco Rizzo"Anti-union conduct that of the SDS (ASL contract): some workers are even without PPE. Added to this is the indifference of the General Manager, despite the multiple reports from the USB".
So Franco Rizzo, provincial coordinator Usb Taranto, in a press note: "Almost a dozen releases that have fallen on deaf ears those that the Union of Base Union has addressed to the SDS, and for information to the ASL of Taranto, to draw attention to a series of shortcomings by the contracting company with reference also the delicacy of the current moment linked to the spread of Covid-19.
Lack of Personal Protective Equipment to avoid exposing workers to the risk of contagion, but also abuse in the management of work that manifests itself in the decision to move employees, arbitrarily, from the capital city to the province and vice versa.
To the requests of the Usb, the general manager of the ASL responded by declaring that he could not intervene, even though the Ionian health company was the contracting authority.
We are therefore faced with yet another proof of Dr. Rossi's inadequacy to play a role which, especially in a phase such as the present one, certainly requires different skills and a particular determination in making certain decisions.
The President of the Region, Michele Emiliano, continues to give confidence to those who obviously do not have the right skills to manage health in an area such as the Ionian one and which, moreover, is completely disinterested towards workers.
We can only be strongly critical also in judging the choice to move, due to the Coronavirus emergency, many departments from hospitals to private clinics, incurring costs that are anything but negligible ".
