Italy: collective agreement reached in metals industry  

After 15 months of negotiations, interspersed with suspensions, the national collective agreement for the metals industry – which expired at the end of 2019 – was renewed on 5 February. A draft agreement has been reached by Federmeccanica and Assistal on the employer side and the Fim, Fiom and Uilm on the union side, though it is yet to be submitted to workers.

As well as addressing the issue of pay increases, the agreement modernises and updates the job classification system, bolsters guarantees for outsourced workers in the event of a change of service provider, and introduces national training programme.
