The president of the Calabria Region asks an participation for the government in order to resolve the crisis of the port of Gioia Tauro

Oliverio emphasizes that collapse of the traffics in the port of call has fallen back directing on the occupation with 500 places of job in danger

The Calabria Region has asked an participation for the government for giving upturn to the situation of crisis crossed from the port of Gioia Tauro, port of call that last year has recorded a bending of the -4,5% of the containerized trade(of 11 February 2019), trend negative that has a strong impact also on the occupation as evidenced in a interrogation to the government deposited from deputies Wanda Ferro and Carmela Bucalo (Siblings of Italy) in which specific that the occupational situation progressively has been aggravated with the lay-off of about 380 workers of the port to which the announcement of the Medcenter is followed in recent days Container Terminal (MCT), the society that manages the container terminal of the port of call, of a new procedure of collective lay-off that would have to interest about 500 workers.

In a letter sent to the Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte, and for information to the minister of Infrastructures and Danilo Toninelli Transports, also the president of the Region Calabria, Mario Oliverio, has emphasized that the determined dramatic situation in the port of Gioia Tauro is aggravated from day to day, "to forehead - he has found - of an intercontinental market and Mediterranean who sees a strong resumption is of goods exchanged that of job in the harbour terminals. The gravity of the situation - Oliverio has confirmed - comes all to unload itself on the shoulders of the workers, their families and the territory already a lot tried".

In the missive the governor of the Calabria has remembered that "the port of Gioia Tauro for its characteristics is a national port, classified in the European nets as port "Core" and therefore the decisionalità and the financings are all to cargo to the State. And this - it has specified - is worth to greater reason for the European financings that arrive to the State so that it spends them through the PON in the port of Joy and its retroporto, and therefore explicitly are previewed that the Calabria Region cannot spend resources POR in the port of Joy. The responsibility - it has found Oliverio - is therefore in head to the central government".

"In November 2018 - it has continued the president of the Region - we have had a chance for represent for joined the Prime Minister (the minister of Infrastructures, to the presidents of the Chambers, and to the deputation all of the Calabria) the serious situation of the port. Today the situation is still more serious and could turn to the irretrievable one, also in positive international a marine context, in case it is not provided with an immediate one, decided and authoritative participation of the government".

The "immediate ones and you specify demanded governmental engagements" from Oliverio are relative to a "participation for the management of the docks", to the "reconstitution of integrity of the Harbour Authority" let alone to "immediate investments PON nets in the port and activation of the ZES".

"It is necessary - Oliverio has esplicitato - an immediate participation of the government in order to resolve the situation that determines collapse of the traffics in the port, with the fallen back directed one on the workers: the unacceptable amount, 500 places of job in danger. This is so much more serious in Calabria that, also having had positive an occupational increment in the past couple of years, has a level of unemployment between the highest of the Country and almost double quantity of national the medium value".

"From how much he learns himself from newspapers - the president of the Region has explained - the society that manages the terminal of Gioia Tauro is in a definable condition of stall. Stall that would derive from the divergences in the strategies of the same society, that is the two associates who stop 50% everyone (the Contship Italy that takes part of the German group Eurokai and the Terminal Investment Limited of the shipowning group Helvetic Mediterranean Shipping Company, ndr) do not converge on who and as he must carry out the investments. Without to enter inside of the social decisions that determine industrial politics of the same society, is but obvious that the main asset of the society depends on the concession of the docks, and that such concession is governed by the national government directly and by the Harbour Authority. The government beginning from has therefore in hand the decisionalità as in all the other concessions those highway ones. It is necessary - Oliverio has written - than the government concludes quickly I confront with the terminalista society and the two associates in order to realize the private investments to the aim to exceed the stall situation".

About the reconstitution of integrity of the Harbour Authority of Gioia Tauro, Oliverio has remembered that "it has been had a chance for represent, with a specific note on November 21, 2018, the serious situation that has come to create with the breach of integrity of the Harbour Authority of Gioia Tauro, happened based on the fiscal law n. 136 on December 17, 2018, and the serious consequences of such decision". If with I decree governmental of reform of the legislation in matter of portualità of half 2016 were decided in fact the institution of the Authority of Harbour System of Mari Tirreno Meridionale, Ionian and of the Strait with jurisdiction on the ports of Gioia Tauro, Crotone (old and new port), Corigliano Calabro, Taureana of Palmi, Villa San Giovanni, Messina, Milazzo, Tremestieri, Vibo Valentia and Reggio Calabria, with the law n. 136 of end 2018 instead the creation of an Authority of Harbour System of Mari Tirreno Meridionale and called Ionio has settled to administer the ports of Gioia Tauro, Crotone (old and new port), Corigliano Calabro, Taureana of Palmi and Vibo Valentia and the institution of an Authority of Harbour System of the Strait that would have to manage the ports of Messina, Milazzo, Tremestieri, Villa San Giovanni and Reggio Calabria.

"It has been had a chance for signal with note to signature of the Calabria Region, of the Metropolitan City of Reggio Calabria, the Municipalities of Reggio Calabria and Villa San Giovanni - Oliverio has remembered - the different reasons that they return such roman decision most serious, and on which not it has been some answer, some study, some analysis. One agrees here integrally recalled the note on 21 November with the specific reasons in note: operating territorial reasons; reasons of managerial continuity and strategic programming of the port of Villa; reasons of comprehensive economic and social integration of the European port of Reggio Calabria reasons of economic delicacy of the new Authority; reasons of economic and legal order for the development of the ZES Calabria".

"Against such note, and of the contemporary declarations of all the world of work, the unions, the datoriali associations - the president of the Calabria Region has denounced - no roman will to understand and to discuss is emerged. All this has obliged to appeal to the Constitutional Court.

In the Oliverio letter it has rimarcato moreover that "it is equally decisive that the government takes part quickly with the participations in the port that they fall back in financings PON for the same port through the instrument Logistic Area Integrated (ALI). Draft - it has remembered - of a decisive plan of investments for about 150 million relative to railway systems, potenziamento street aces, potenziamento docks, etc. the block of the investments seems every more inexplicable day, just to light of the particularly difficult situation which it is that of the port and the retroporto. He is ineludible - it has explained - a determined action that affords to second take part previewed how much in the regional Plan of the Transports of the approved of Calabria, with Vas, and positive opinion of the Commission. Beginning from the Plan you transport is carried out a wide consultation with the forces of the job, the unions the datoriali associations, the collectivity, the research centers, that it has carried to the approval of the program financial ALI. Today the investments are started only that are under responsibility of the PON Ministry of the Insides, while it is all arrest warrant for infrastructure".

At last Oliverio has sped up also "an immediate convocation of the Committee of Address for the ZES. He recalls himself - the president of the Region has still remembered - than such committee is composed of four members of which three of governmental emanation. The Calabria after to be it are the first region to propose the ZES, it has been the first to having I decree implementing in the spring of 2018, but only in December 2018 are completed the Committee with the last governmental nomination and, however, today no encounter is still carried out, slowing down the profuse engagement hard from the Region beginning from the unified Suap for all the area of Joy”.

Oliverio has concluded asking confronts directed with the government on these topics.
