Ericsson Italy workers strike against redundancies

Tuesday 20 June 2017 | 11:19 CET | News
Employees at Ericsson Italia are holding a nationwide strike on 20 June against the company's plan to lay off 354 of its workers. The strike was unanimously declared by members of the SLC-Cgil, Fistel-Cisl and Uilcom-UIL trade unions to protest against a redundancy procedure involving 315 Ericsson workers from its telecom unit and 39 in IT Solutions & Services. Ericsson executives are due to meet trade union representatives at the headquarters of Italy's ministry for economic development (MiSE) on 27 June.

On 07/28/2017 New National Strike. Last Monday, July 24th, the first letters of dismissal have arrived to 182 persons, but I would like to tell Ericsson adopted method has gone against any code of ethics. Some fired staff arrived to our Ericsson’s Italian premises without having been warned; unaware about the dismissal action they swiped the badge to get in, and realized that they could not enter. They immediately thought of a technical problem, a break in the access system. Unfortunately, their badges were disabled and they couldn’t even login without notice.
