(ANSA) – GENOA, NOVEMBER 25 – The two former Ilva workers fired by the company at the end of 2020 for having set up the so-called ‘relax room’ inside the Genoese plant were acquitted with full formula. The two workers were accused of aggravated theft and possession of ammunition. “As Fiom of Genoa we learn with satisfaction of this acquittal of which we were convinced, which dismantles absurd theorems very distant from the history of this plant and of the Genoese iron and steel workers” the Genoese secretary of Fiom Stefano Bonazzi and Armando Palombo of the Fiom RSU say in a note in Italian steelworks.
The company had discovered the dining room during an inspection and had called the police because among the many disused objects there were some old shell casings. Digos had also been called which, however, after a very rapid check, had ruled out without any doubt any subversive hypothesis as being flashed by the company. Four workers were suspended and then fired: the two workers who actually used the room to eat during the night shift, their manager, an engineer who would have had the task of checking the correct use of the rooms and a third worker who he had mocked a company executive in a whatsaspp vowel. Immediate protests by the workers to ask for the reinstatement of colleagues with strikes at the gates and one of the workers was immediately reinstated while for the other two, who had been reported by the company, the reinstatement had not been possible. The fired engineer now has another job.
“The extremely complex situation of the plants remains open – recall Bonazzi and Palombo – for which the workers of the whole group went on strike last Monday, who see the absence of investments and maintenance. Just today we learn of the postponement of the group’s shareholders’ meeting “, we believe this is a bad sign. The Government must intervene in the short term to ensure that the steel industry in Italy does not continue this slow agony”. (HANDLE).
