Petitions Committee: Italian university lecturer paid 61.81% more than non-Italian in same pay category

At a meeting in the European Parliament, see video Petitions Committee European Parliament 25 November 2013  Victor Boştinaru MEP asked for an examination of  lettori pay slips as a simple and clear way of establishing whether Italian lecturers were paid more favourably than non-Italians.

We are very grateful to Mr Boştinaru for this suggestion and his support for upholding not just the principles of EU law but for insisting to the Parliament and the European Commission –  that these principles must be effectively applied.

I can now confirm that the Petitions Committee  has been sent empirical evidence – showing  a shortfall a 61.81%  for lettore when compared to an Italian worker in the same  pay parameter (as established in the Italian courts).

November 2013, net pay for lettore whose work has been evaluated by Verona tribunal (and upheld in the Italian Supreme Court)  as equivalent to that of Associate Professor, part-time is €1.435 while that of an Italian worker in the same grade is €2.322.

A newly appointed Italian in this parameter will have a higher take home pay than a non-Italian with 28 years service.

The Italian authorities, after 30 years litigation, have yet to apply the principles of 6 judgments in the ECJ or judgments of their own courts.

ALLSI – accompanied by our lawyer, Prof. Avv. Lorenzo Picotti, will meet Commission lawyers working for Commissioner László Andor on 27 January 2014 to discuss the way forward.
