Nicolini (Confetra): to deal with the virus emergency you need a clear discipline to protect workers in our industry

In the forthcoming government decree , he stressed -- the supply chain of logistics and freight transport must absolutely be considered one of the most affected

The Italian General Confederation of Transport and Transport Logistics (Confetra) asks the government that, as part of the measures to address the emergency coronavirus, provide clear guidance to protect workers of the companies he represents. At the end of the meeting Today with the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Paola De Micheli, the president of Confetra, Guido Nicolini, thanking De Micheli for the prompt convocation and also the Ministers Amendola and Hope, he specified that the Confederation has renewed the "We don't want to -- Nicolini said -- pass for alarmists, nor are we interested in claiming the role of the prophets of doom. But - he added - it has been weeks since we repeat at Palazzo Chigi, unheeded, that we need a disciplinary protect the workers in our sector.'

"We are - recalled Nicolini - the labour sector intensive care, with 100,000 companies for about one million and half of workers: truck drivers, train drivers, drivers, couriers, porters, handlers, warehouse workers. Workers who, for they move things, they transfer goods, they travel. It is often works in teams, like dockers, or you go in and out of factories, plants, shops, houses to pick up or deliver goods.

The Minister has assured us that, subject to further rapid social partners, the issue will be addressed and resolved in the next few hours. We also reiterated to the Minister that, in the forthcoming decree of the President of the Council of Ministers, the supply chain of logistics and freight transport must absolutely be considered among the most affected.'
