What is the orientation of trade associations and distribution companies? « Workers Insurance – Advertise Donatella Brambolini, President FIDA-Confcommercio – Also means a stipulation that a vaccination or green pass must be given. We believe it is essential to provide this commitment to all employees who work in supermarkets and food stores nearby.” However, Brampolini specifies that companies are waiting for government regulation, because – he explains – “the current legislation does not even allow us to ask who has been vaccinated, but we know that already within the workers, tensions are beginning to arise between those who have been vaccinated and those who have not.”
