(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 30 – The major trade union syndicates of teachers in the streets and on strike against the school policies of Minister Bianchi and the Draghi government. In Piazza Santi Apostoli in Rome, united in protest, the coordinators of the unions’ unions explain the reasons for the strike. “The same mistakes continue to be repeated. Today we are all here together because the school is not going to be cut off for the umpteenth time”, accuses the general secretariat of CISL Scuola Ivana Barbacci. “The government has decided to introduce, by decree-law, the training system intended for a few teachers without purpose, without quality and without a specific purpose”, she continues. “11600 staff cuts are expected in the coming years which will create discomfort in terms of the objectives of the NRP, not reducing the number of students per class”, she continues. “There are 250 thousand precarious teachers who have been serving for over 36 months and these people do not need an amnesty but an adequate path.
And then there is the issue of the renewal of the contract of 1.2 million workers who are the lowest paid in the public administration. Francesco Sinopoli of Flc Cgil echoes her. “We are not investing in schools, we are not guaranteeing the right to education,” says the trade unionist. “This decree law is absurd and establishes a selective training system that is financed by cutting the workforce. The precarious workers are not recognized their value”. According to the national coordinator Rino Di Meglio of the Gilda “there was an offensive allocation of resources, with an expired contract, we are talking about 40-50 euros net per capita compared to 7% inflation that is impoverishing people”. He also protests from Snals with the general secretariat Elvira Serafini and from Marcello Pacifico of Anief. (HANDLE).
