ROME, 02 MAY – The trade unions are asking for more resources to be allocated to the new aid decree for families and businesses. This is what emerges from the declarations of the general secretaries of the CGIL, CISL and UIL, Maurizio Landini, Luigi Sbarra and Pierpaolo Bombardieri, after the meeting at Palazzo Chigi with Prime Minister Mario Draghi. “The government has repeated to us that for now the reasoning they make is on an intervention level between 6 and 7 billion, we told them that we consider the figure insufficient. Now is the time for a departure “, Landini said at the end of the meeting, while arguing that” the government agrees that the priority is to protect the purchasing power of wages and pensions “but on this” we did not have the contents of the provision “on which he is working,” for which our judgment remains suspended “. “The government has anticipated that a 6-7 billion bill coming in the next few hours is being studied to support families and businesses and deal with this difficult situation”, declared, instead, the general secretary of the CISL, Luigi Sbarra, appreciating the convocation of the government and underlining that it is “an important allocation but not sufficient”. To recover other resources, according to the CISL, it would be necessary to act for “further taxation of the extra-profits of multinationals, the reinvestment of” extra VAT revenue and the possibility of a budget variance “, he adds. Finally, the secretary general of UIL, Pierpaolo Bombardieri, claimed that he had reiterated the need to “intervene on wages, work and pensions and energy costs”. “The government has acknowledged our requests and shares them. In the decree he is preparing to make, he will take into account our proposals and requests. We will see the choices he will make ”, concluded Bombardieri. The meeting was attended by the Minister of Economy Daniele Franco, of Labor Andrea Orlando and of Economic Development Giancarlo Giorgetti and the Undersecretary to the Prime Minister Roberto Garofoli.
