Manris Fiom-Cgil continues campaign for reopening of negotiations on metalworking agreement First, it is necessary to recognise a reduction of its conrtatto to diminish, or keep under control, industrial conflict in such an important area as the metalworking sector. However, the strategy of putting forward those claims seems to be almost the only available option for Fiom-Cgil, after the conclusion of the May sectoral renewal, if it intends to continue to put forward its demands.
In the absence of a united trade union front, differing local economic and labour market conditions, combined with a trade union pluralism unevenly distributed across the country, may cause a significant fragmentation of collective bargaining which renders the bargaining system difficult to manage, to the detriment of the firms above all, but also of the role of industrial relations.
On one side, pre-agreements introduce de facto a higher fragmentation of collective bargaining and weaken the role of the industry-wide agreement, while postponing the achievement of the objective of a unified system of protection to a future sectoral agreement. Pre-agreement bargaining is under way in 1, metalworking companies and groups, involving aroundworkers the national agreement covers 1. This decision has a highly disruptive potential for the industrial relations system which could probably have been anticipated by the other sectoral actors.
Obviously not under discussion is the legitimacy and validity of an agreement signed by only some of the unions involved, but rather its ability to reduce conflict, without which the role of joint regulation through industrial relations appears significantly weakened.
The tensions inherent in a situation of trade union pluralism have been largely overcome by the decades-long unity of action by the union confederations, but they may resurface if that unity breaks down.

Paradoxically, the union most committed to the overriding importance of the national agreement has been forced to resort to company-level bargaining rounds although it presents them as a way to reopen the national-level negotiations. Moreover, the metalworking industrial associations in the abovementioned provinces are considering whether to take legal steps to protect the rights of firms and of workers who want to work despite the protest action organised by Fiom-Cgil — such as picketing and the blockading of factory entrances- which they maintain go beyond the right to strike.
According to the most recent survey conducted by Fiom-Cgil, some pre-agreements have been signed to date, covering around 38, workers. Click to share this page to Twitter securely Tweet.

Fiom-Cgil continues campaign for reopening of negotiations on metalworking agreement Published on: Moreover, if the divisions that have given rise to this situation were to spread through the Italian industrial relations system, there would be a real risk of a breakdown of collective bargaining, with a growth in conflict and a corresponding erosion of the efficiency of industrial relations, as well as of participatory practices and increasing antagonism among the unions and in bilateral relations too.
The agreements have mainly concerned the regions of Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Lombardy and Piedmont, whilst in the South no pre-agreements have yet been signed. Moreover, Fiom-Cgil has identified at national-level a set of fundamental demands to be included in the bargaining platforms for the pre-agreements: The companies involved are mainly of medium size with between and employees.
The aim of the latter is to conclude pre-agreements pre-contratti — ie company agreements intended to anticipate the contents of a future new sectoral accord along the lines sought by Fiom-Cgil — and to force the reopening of negotiations on renewal of the national sectoral agreement, since Fiom-Cgil does not recognise the validity of the accord signed in May Subsequently, Fim-Cisl and Uilm-Uil also reached agreements with Unionmeccanica — Confapithe association of small and medium-sized metalworking companies, and with LegacooperativeConfcooperative and Agciwhich represent cooperatives in the same sector.
Nor is it surprising that the large majority of workers should approve company agreements which provide for substantial wage increases; nor that firms should sign company agreements which contradict sectoral ones when multi-employer national-level bargaining does not shift conflict outside firms, but instead brings conflict into them.
