MILAN - Government and social partners return to the table to face the heat emergency. According to what has been learned from trade union sources, the executive government is ready to enact rules that provide for access to the cigo (ordinary fund) for extreme events in the building industry, separating it from the calculation of the weeks envisaged in the mobile two-year period, and to envisage a provision to launch access to the cisoa, the layoff fund for farmers with an indefinite period, with use by the hour.
Work, on the hot plane it's already a clash. Unions: not enough. But businesses are slowing down

"We are ready with rules that can allow construction companies to access the ordinary redundancy fund for objectively unavoidable events, without these entering into the calculation of the weeks foreseen in the mobile two-year period", thus remaining outside the ceiling. According to what is learned, the Minister of Labor, Marina Calderone, would have said it, explaining that the intervention will be for 2023 and "we will propose to make it structural in financial terms". For Cisoa, the cig for permanent agricultural workers, "we are ready to manage a regulation for hourly use".
The measures will be valid throughout 2023 but the government's intention would be to make them "structural" in the next budget. The indication is for the launch, already in the council of ministers scheduled for the day after tomorrow, of a government decree that will allow the cigo in the event of high temperatures in construction and the hourly trade in agriculture.
"I confirm that we are ready with rules that can allow companies in the construction sector to access the cig for objectively unavoidable events without these entering into the calculation of the weeks foreseen in the mobile two-year period", Calderone would have said, thus judging the proposal arrived by the unions as "acceptable".
"An intervention that we will manage throughout 2023 but with a further intervention to make it structural in the financial sector", he added. "For agriculture there is an identical assessment: we are talking about permanent workers, the request was to allow hourly use of the till. Also on this they are ready to manage a regulation in this sense".
