The Carrara-area marble quarry workers go on strike to protest Renzi’s “Jobs Act” reforms

The marble quarry workers are fed up: they are going to stand against Matteo Renzi’s reforms. Two two-hour strikes are expected in the next few days and workers from some of the largest quarries (Henreaux, and Savema, and Campolonghi) will participate.

The workers are especially concerned about the reforms to “Articolo 18” – which pretty much “liberalizes” the job market, … by removing all worker employment-protections and making it easier for anyone to be fired from their job.

“It is an act that does not have a precedent in the democratic history of this country” stated Claudio Vezzoni, a local union representative, “… modifying Article 18 without even a discussion in Parliament.”
