Tim, unions worried about the failure to refinance the expansion contract

The expansion contract for 2024 will not be refinanced by the government, with the promised 150-200 million. That is, the instrument that allowed Tim to send home as many as 10 thousand employees in a non-traumatic way between 2019 and 2023 . “This means that there will not be an active policy instrument to manage the very delicate situation that Tim is experiencing – he said Riccardo Saccone of the CGIL – where other instruments could intervene but this is also a bad signal for the entire telecommunications sector, which is experiencing a profound restructuring.

And therefore we ask for the reconvening of the technical table at the Mimit promised by the government last February 6th. There is an absence of specific guarantees on Tim’s employment stability after the separation of the network and therefore we want to know how the government plans to manage this matter and what real commitments it intends to make. A dramatic underestimation of what could happen to Tim’s workers, also in light of the decision to endorse the stew, and on the stability of the strategic telecommunications sector”.

The theme of separation

The problem is the service company which, separated from the network, should have at least 16 thousand employees, i.e. as many as all the competitors have together (Vodafone, WindTre, Fastweb and iliad). Too many according to the unions. “Unfortunately, as far as the service company is concerned – Saccone continues – we have not been given certain information on how many workers can be integrated while the network, given that the government has negotiated with the KKR fund, we are less worried because the quota of 20 thousand employees could be supported.”

In Tim, however, we witness a paradox

In fact, while in the network company even if the solidarity contract had been renewed there would be few employees of the right age for early retirement, given that they have already left in previous years, while there would be many technicians still working and would be transferred to the network company.

“The only thing that comforts us – says Sacconi – is the establishment of the solidarity fund for the telecommunications supply chain, an instrument that has also been adopted by the banking sector and which has allowed banks to considerably streamline their staff without trauma for employees. The problem is that the telecommunications companies that have to finance it together with the workers in the sector they are not convinced of the merits of the instrument for which we also hope for public funding”. As for the money that was intended for the expansion contract for the telecommunications, it will be diverted elsewhere, perhaps also to refinance the Irpef relief for farmers.
