We are probably at a turning point for ITA which has convened the trade unions for tomorrow, 25 August at 10.30. The subject of the meeting, the first between the unions and the company, was the acquisition by ITA of the Aviation sector of Alitalia under extraordinary administration. At the meeting, we read in the convocation signed by the president of ITA Alfredo Altavilla, the transport category abbreviations of Cgil, Cisl, Uil and Ugl, the Usb private work, Anpac and Anpav are sent.
The new company that picks up the baton of Alitalia will start up its activities with 2,800 employees. This can be read in the communication sent by the company to the trade unions in view of the start of the discussion. The workforce “initially necessary for the start-up of the activities” is “equal, according to the Business Plan, to 2,800 employees”, explains ITA, who says he is “available” to compose the workforce “also evaluating any candidates for recruitment presented by current Alitalia Sai employees “. The Plan also provides that the company can “subsequently increase the initial workforce”, up to “reaching the total maximum number of approximately 5,750 employees in 2025”.
Again in the communication, it is stated that ITA intends to apply the new national collective bargaining agreement for air transport to its personnel – the specific part of the carriers, “provided that the new national collective labor agreement is renewed, no later than the date of 20 September 2021, with discontinuous contents compared to the past and consistent with the needs of the Industrial Plan “. “The deadline of 20 September – he explains – is indicated in order to allow the company, in the absence of an agreement, to develop alternative regulatory solutions”. In the absence of an agreement, in fact, it is added, “ITA will define, with a specific company regulation, the transitional treatments applicable to personnel”
