Renewal of the work contract is a right and a necessity, it means transparency of the incomes and wages policy. The unilateral choices of the governments and of the employers on this question risk to produce only iniquity and discrimination. In those circumstances, SIAP will continue its mobilization with the united trade union cartel, until the operators of the Sector Security and Defense, as well as the public-sector employees, win back their right to have their contracts renewed and to perceive a fair wage, with adequate specific supplements for police and military employees.
If we analyze some of the data in the much-vaunted EU, the gap of the socio-economic conditions between the different nations comes out very clearly. It manifests itself in the natural connection that must elapse between the average per-capita income, taxes, labor costs, services, access to university studies, health care, and in general, living costs.
The gap between Italian workers and those of the other countries, such as Germany, Spain or Great Britain is net. All the indices used by the Eu government to measure the European production and economic system average, or the efficiency of the services offered by the public administration compared to the Italian one, do not take into account the European average per-capita income, which is equivalent to 1,904 euros per month net of tax, in the face of an average life costs of 39.7 euros per day, with an incidence of 68% on the entire per capita income of a worker.
The country in which the ratio between wages and money spent is most favorable is Germany, with an average of 2,580 euros monthly paid and the cost of daily life of 37.2 euros, with an impact equivalent to 43.2%.
Second in the chart of the most liveable countries in Europe is Great Britain, a country in which the citizens can count on an average salary of 2,570 euros, while their daily cost of living is of 50.6 euros, with a general incidence of 58.8%. France is third in the chart, with an average wage of 2,180 euros per month (still above the continental standard) in the face of a expenditure of 44.7 euros for daily needs, which constitute an impact of 60.6% on a family’s budget. To mark the first clear gap with other European countries which are most comparable is Italy, with a considerable distance with respect to Spain, it is at the bottom of the European chart.
Data show an average per-capita salary of 1.410 euros and a expenditure of 39.4 euros per day, very close to the amount spent on average by a Swede, who gains much more. According to a detailed analysis of the public employment service of the UIL Syndicate, Italians’ cost of living is very high, according to the comparison of the data it is of 83.8%, almost 20 percentage points more than the European average.
If we were to calculate the loss on the gross wage retribution based exclusively on the recovery of the planned inflation for every year during the period of contractual vacation and the block of the renewals, which spans from 2010 to 2015, compared to the average salary of the staff and of the leaders of the public employees, adding the increase inflation of every year to the next one the loss accumulated in 2015 oscillates between 2,303.23 euros per annum of the employees, up to 6,230.54 for the leadership, an average to which should be added the supplement specific to certain professions.
To conclude, if from mediation and constructive dialog, before the adoption of the stability law, answers for adequate wage increases after six years of contractual block do not emerge, we will support the proclamation of a strike that shall be proclaimed by the CGIL, CISL and UIL Syndicates, whereas we, employees in the Security Sector, will protest on a national level to raise awareness in the Government to review their own choices on the question of incomes policy.
