There is no agreement between companies and unions to introduce Green corridor to access the premises. And so the ball goes back to the government, which will have to decide whether to continue the extension Obligation by law-Fixed only for school staff, for other categories. In the meantime, however, at the conclusion of yesterday’s meeting with trade unions and business associations, the Ministers of Labor, Andrea Orlando, and Health, Roberto Speranza, specified that the commitment of the Green Corridor, already introduced to access restaurants, has been extended. Company canteens, not only those that are open to the public, but also those intended only for employees. These clarifications arrived specifically at the conclusion of the meeting, following requests for clarification from the same unions regarding the decree-law issued by the Council of Ministers on Thursday. So we are in a strange situation where, at the moment, there is no obligation for the green certificate (which certifies vaccination, recovery or negative swab) to get to the workplace, but to go to the canteen. So workers who do not have the green pass can enter the company but to eat they must go out or bring their own meal. The Confederate Secretary of the CISL Confederation, Angelo Colombini, present at the meeting, said the situation should be clarified. Even the leader of the CGIL, Maurizio Landini, and the leader of the UIL, Pierpaolo Bombardieri, do not like such a prospect at all, because in fact it equates to half an introduction to the commitment of the green permit to workers, at least to all who eat in the company’s canteen. Bombardieri says this is a clear contradiction that poses major management problems. But this is not the only point of contradiction with the government and companies.
Trade union concerns
The Prime Minister, Mario Draghi, who met a few days ago with the unions to understand whether the foundations could be laid for an agreement between the social partners on the introduction of the green corridor in the workplace, after the large number of CGIL, Cisl and Uil, have instructed Orlando and Speranza to make another attempt And this time they put business associations around the table, too. But it was useless. The ministers found themselves between two fires: On the one hand Confindustria and other associations, in favor of introducing the Green Passage, on the other hand, unions against it. Or rather: unwillingness to agree on this. Landini reiterated that the green passport’s obligation to access workplaces cannot be of a treaty nature, but a law is needed, and the same is true for compulsory vaccinations. Guild leaders are hiding behind this situation Fearing that companies want the mandatory green passport to have the freedom to reorganize the work, that with recovery and the need to ramp up production, the green corridor becomes a way to loosen safety rules (masks, distancing and sterilization), which should instead remain, even if the government decides to abide by certification by law, Bombardieri says.
Towards the rule of law
Ultimately, the latter, which was discussed at the meeting and which saw unions and businesses also split over the question of who should pay the tampons. Workers who cannot or do not want to be vaccinated can in fact enter the company only by survey (15-20 euros each time). Confindustria’s vice president, Maurizio Stirpe, immediately put his hand, explaining that companies could not take charge of it. The unions replied: Not even the workers, especially since it is the state that imposes the obligation. As if to say: Pay the treasury. Trade associations, sectoral Where the green corridor commitment to sit inside restaurants and bars has already been activated, And they demanded the possibility of gradually extending the certification of workers of the same structures, given that at the height of the summer season, companies find it difficult to find employees. Cooperatives aim to extend the Green Passport to the categories most in contact with the public, starting with social assistance operators. The decision is up to the government. We need to combine health and economy. We’ll do that by continuing the conversation, says Orlando.
