David Lidington MP Minister for Europe to meet British lecturers from Italian universities

I am delighted to report that David Lidington MP, UK Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs has asked to meet us for a personal briefing on the plight of foreign lecturers working in Italy.

We will be showing Mr Lidington personal profiles of British lecturers who have been in litigation for up to 25 years. Some have retired and others have died without ever having drawn their proper pensions.

The meeting will take place in London on 28 October 2010.

    Well done David. Best of luck. Let’s hope the Minister will be able to do put an end to this discrimination which has gone on for far, far too long.

  2. I support your cause. A good case, it should be followed up by the EP. I hope you get some movement as soon as possible.

    I would like to thank Mr. Lidington for his interest in our situation here in Italy. While some of us have made gains through legal action in which the courts have recognized that discrimination was taking place, many others have suffered a kind of institutionalized mobbing for trying to defend their rights. Even those of us who have won court decisions have often been subjected to discrimanting behaviour in retaliation for our legal victories. We have been taken off exam comittees, had courses taken away from us, seen our courses no longer credited towards completion of degrees. I hope Mr. Liddington is able to help rectify this deplorable situation.
