Filt, Fit and Uilt, the EU procedure on the taxation of ports risks compromising national port system

Government and parliament - urge the trade unions - show that our country respects competition rules

Filt Cgil, Fit Cisl and Uiltrasporti urge government and parliament to prove to the EU that Italy complies with EU rules competition on port taxation. As a result of the European Commission's procedure on the abolition of income tax exemption for companies Italian ports, which is a violation of the law EU on state aid, trade unions highlight that this "risks triggering a deleterious mechanism our port system."

'Compared to the Commission's decision on 8 January 2019, which Italy did not accept by rejecting the charges in march, the three trade unions explain, The Commission needs to be made aware that the exemption tax has no relevance to a distorting practice competition, Community but, on the contrary, revolt development of the competitiveness of the country system. It's not a case that in our legislation is expressly prohibited Port Authority to directly exercise activity, as is not required by the standard that they have a VAT Match. This shows that In Italy, ADSPs, non-economic public bodies, are third parties which have a number of institutional regulatory tasks, promotion, supervision and control, but not management. This It is of particular importance given the role of Authorities, as public guarantors, within a world, where various competitors are increasingly aggressive towards the land supply chain for the transport of goods, creating monopolies and dominant positions in the market."

"Compromising this set-up," says Filt Cgil, Fit Cisl and Uiltrasporti - could mean determining a stroke the possibilities of Italian porrelevance to play an appropriately competitive role in the industry would change the roles and functions of these bodies, also at the expense of security and industry regulation. It would, in simple terms, ask the referee to wear the shirt and play the game."

'Government and parliament- urge the three organisations union members - reflect carefully on the developments of the affair, for which a month has been given since the 10th January, to make the appropriate observations, because responsibility for a disaster, which could be announced, they can only fall on the inefficiency of management politics of an affair that took its first step a year ago with results, it seems obvious, rather poor."

"Demonstrate that the Italian port model is efficient and that respects the rules of competition in a market "It's not just a thing," says Filt Cgil, Fit Cisl and Uiltrasporti - must be a clear commitment, starting with the organizations trade unions, with all the tools at their disposal, of all the so-called cluster, even if the defense of national prerogatives should apply to the EU Court of Justice.'
