Rome - Ilva, strike in Taranto and concern among ArcelorMittal workers. The strike at the Ilva plant in Taranto, launched by the UBS, begins tonight at 23:00 and will run until 7:00 on Friday, 21. “The reasons for the strike are connected to the 4,000 redundancies,” says Franco Rizzo, coordinator of UBS. Meanwhile, in the ArcelorMittal group, which has bought Ilva, the European Business Council (trade union body) is worried, reports the newspaper Le Figaro, about the impact that the operation could have on the group’s other European facilities. In a statement, the Committee regrets the company’s “unclear responses”, it is “worried about the impact on future investments in other plants” and calls for clarification on the EU.
