Thursday morning, the premier Giuseppe Conte asked for a meeting at the Hill and, during the meeting, Sergio Mattarella he expressed his concerns about the whole "industrial system" and called for a solution quickly. In the background remain the fears for the majority holding and the only alternative, if the Government Count 2 should not overcome the Ilva obstacle, reports the Corriere della Sera, for the Colle is that of the return to the polls. Furthermore, the President of the Council has not ruled out that there is a solution in the field nationalization.

Unions strike from 7
It started at 7 – and will last until the same time on Saturday – the strike called by Fim, Fiom and Uilm in the Taranto steel plant and in the other sites of the ArcelorMittal group. Dozens of procurement workers they are garrisoned near the business concierge: the induced one trembles, from the 400 employees of the Sanac up to 50 of the Enetec for which the company has already requested the ordinary layoff. The metalworkers ask "the company the immediate withdrawal of the procedure of retrocession of the business branches and the government of not granting any alibi to the same to disengage, restoring all the conditions in which the 6 September 2018 agreement was signed which would guarantee the possibility of completing the Environmental plan in the established deadlines ”. Fim, Fiom and Uilm argue that "the multinational has placed some provocative and unacceptable conditions and the most serious concern the modification of the Environmental Plan, the production downsizing to 4 million tons and the request for dismissal of 5,000 workers, in addition to questioning the return to work of the 2,000 currently in Extraordinary Administration ”. The union representatives of Fiom and Uilm in a note speak of "silent strike"To highlight" the exceptional nature of the situation that generated and is generating excessive confusion "and how" silence, on such a complex case, is worth more than a thousand words opposed to political clamor. We are tired – they add – of being inside a meat grinder and we believe it is necessary to rewrite a story, together with the workers and the whole community, different from the one represented up to now ”.
Patuanelli: "Nationalize? I don't see why talking about risk "
"I don't see why talking about risk. I believe it was historically a error privatize the steel industry, which was a flagship and of which today remains a single plant, "affirmed the Minister of Economic Development Patatelli, in an interview with The Republic, on the risk of nationalizing the former Ilva. "Right now – he underlines – the government's priority is to get ArcelorMittal respect commitments taken. This is Plan A, Plan B and Plan C and for this reason I have called Parliament, the social forces and all the institutional components of the country to a sense of responsibility that must make the entrepreneur feel the massive presence of the Italian system " . "The theme of the shield – says Patuanelli – is no longer there. As a government we immediately gave the company the willingness to reinsert it, to remove any alibi. But ArcelorMittal said that even if we solved, in addition to that, the other side issues, the quay and the blast furnace 2, the production would still be 4 million tons per year. With 5 thousand redundancies. It is unacceptable ".
