The workers’ union (Ver.di) is demanding increases of 500 euros a month for workers and one-year sectoral contracts, while the employers’ side is pushing for significantly longer contracts.

The next phases of negotiations are scheduled for January 30 and February 8, and new strike actions are not excluded.
