AGI – Changes in sight for the Simplifications decree which will be approved tomorrow from the CDM: it will not contain the maximum discount principle but the use of integrated procurement should be allowed. This is what emerged from the meeting between the leaders of CGIL, CISL and UIL, Prime Minister Mario Draghi and the Ministers of Labor and Infrastructure, Orlando and Giovannini.
Another novelty is the reduction of contracting structures to a much lower number, improving the quality of the investment process. Two changes that meet the satisfaction of the trade unions. On subcontracting, the discussion continues on a technical level.
The unions have evaluated the table positively and are now waiting to see the final text.
The government’s goal it is to simplify in order to move forward as quickly as possible with tenders and the implementation of projects, but CGIL, CISL and UIL insist on asking for maximum guarantees of worker safety. According to reports from the general secretary of the CGIL, Maurizio Landini, the Government is also willing to approve a decree law for the “staff recruitment“which controls and defines the contracts.
CGIL, CISL and UIL then welcomed the opening with satisfaction of the President of the Council to the participation of the social partners in governance for the NRP. No approach, however, on the blocking of layoffs: on this Draghi told the unions “not to have the same idea as theirs, but to be available for discussion”. A comparison that is destined to continue on the other issues as well. For Cgil, Cisl and Uil the “important results” achieved are the result of the “mobilization implemented, in recent days, at national, territorial and category level” and tomorrow’s initiative in front of Montecitorio remains confirmed to give continuity to this commitment. The crux remains the layoffs which should not be talked about until the pandemic is over to avoid the ‘social bomb’ and not to create a vulnerability at the departure of the PNRR.
