Commissioner Andor – lettori wage cuts and Italian Senate shenanigans

Accompanied by our lawyer, Prof. Avv. Lorenzo Picotti we met, 27 January 2014, with the European Commission Director responsible for Employment and Social Legislation, Social Dialogue, Mr Armindo Silva, who reports directly to Commissioner  Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, László Andor.

We discussed the Gelmini law was  and its application – how lettori – a category of workers defined by the European Court of Justice as non-Italian nationals – were singled out to suffer wage cuts of up to 50% while these cuts apply to no category of Italian workers in the universities.

Gelmini attempts to undo the effects of binding judgements of the European Court of Justice – and block lettori from access to justice and compensation for arrears in wages and pension contributions. See Senate budget office report  – English translation  pp. 7-9. Italian SENATE Art 26 XVI + translation  – English translation  pp. 7-9.
