Trade union repression at UPS Italy

From Jordi Martorell, 30 September 1997

Dear brothers and sisters,

Two shop stewards and another 6 workers from the Milan site of UPS Italy have just been sacked by the company. 23 other workers have been threatened with sacking. The move follows a series of strikes by UPS Italy workers in the Spring (see against subcontracting of the drivers, for better wages and conditions adn for trade union recognition. The two shop stewards, Antonio Forlano and Roberto Basso, are members of the UPS Italy shop stewards committee (RSU) and members of the FILT-CGIL (Italian Federation of Tranport Workers - Italian General Confederation of Labour).

Please send solidarity messages to:
