Rome, Italy. 16th December, 2021. Today, two of the three main Italian Trade Unions: CGIL (Italian General Confederation of Labour, General Secretary Maurizio Landini, 1.) and UIL (Italian Labour Union, General Secretary Pierpaolo Bombardieri, 2.). held a demo in Piazza Del Popolo to mark their eight-hour general strike called stating that "the Government is working as the opposite as Robin Hood did, steals from the poor to give to the rich". From the organisers Press release: «The budget law and the measures implemented do not give sufficient answers. We want concrete changes for male and female workers, pensioners and to strengthen the social and territorial cohesion. We are together to fight precariousness and guarantee employment for young people and women; together for a fair tax intervention for low and medium-low incomes and for greater redistribution and progressivity; together for a serious fight against tax evasion; together for a pension reform [...], facilitating those who do heavy work and precocious workers, providing for the guarantee pension for young people and the enhancement of care jobs; together for the school and for a quality education system starting from job stability; together for new industrial policies to face the ecological & digital transition; together to give solutions to industrial crises, counteracting relocations and with a leading role of the State; together to increase resources for health and to stabilize staff; together to approve the law on non self-sufficiency and increase its resources; together to reduce inequalities starting from the South, because social cohesion means leaving no one behind […]». The last General Strike was held in Italy in 2014 against Prime Minister Renzi’s labour reform called "Jobs Act".<br />
