The Indian group Jindal denies an interest in the assets of the former Ilva, after ArcelorMittal's retreat.

Meanwhile, from 7 this morning November 8th, started the state of agitation that will continue. In Genoa, in the Cornigliano factory, the employees met in the assembly, while the workers enrolled in the FIM went on strike November 7 until 3.00 pm Today's protest was announced by Fiom and Uilm who waited for the meeting between government and trade unions before proclaiming mobilization.
