Unions preparing to strike over TIM takeover plans

Thursday 2 December 2021 | 10:22 CET | News
Italy's main telecommunications unions are ready to call a strike at Telecom Italia (TIM) due to uncertainty over jobs prompted by the proposed takeover offer launched by US investment fund KKR, according to a document seen by Reuters. Unions representing TIM's 42,500 workers across Italy have told the company they will not accept any restructure that puts jobs at risk. "We want to be involved in any decision concerning an overhaul of the group," said Riccardo Saccone of the SLC-Cgil union, adding that a strike could be called within 10 days.
