The Italian journalists of radio and television are of strike 48 hours to demand the renovation of the collective agreement, whose negotiation was blocked at the end of September by divergences with the Federation of Publishers
Unemployment affects the radio transmitters and national and local television, public and deprived, besides the thematic channels by via satellite, and will extend until the morning of Sunday.
In an official notice, the journalists of RAI remember that the National Federation of Prensa Italy (FNSI) had requested like “cannot be waived condition” for the negotiation “the recognition and the trusteeship of the independent work of the journalists “freelance” and in uncertainty situation”.
The opposition of the Federation of Publishers to this and other requests have brought about the stagnation of the negotiations, according to the journalists.
The protest of radios and televisions takes place one week after a similar strike of the news agencies, the newspapers, the sites of Internet of the news and the press offices.
The FNSI has denounced the position “of net closing” on the part of the Federation of Publishers, the local private transmitters of broadcast television (Aeranti-Corallo) and the Agency for the Hiring in the Public Use (THEY PLOW).
With these three organisms, the FNSI negotiates for months the renovation of the collective agreement of the press, but the dialog has been congealed before “the impossibility to define a contractual frame that respects the dignity of the profession, the independence of means and the quality of the information”, according to the union.
