How the thirteenth month came about
The thirteenth monthly salary was initially considered as a kind of Christmas gratification that the employer, in a completely voluntary manner, granted to its employees. Only with the passage of time has this become a real right of workers, protected by the legislation itself. Specifically, l‘Obligation to pay the thirteenth monthly payment arrived when in August 1937 it was established the CCNL. Initially the thirteenth was recognized only to workers in the industrial sector, while over the years, the succession of new legislation, extended the right to all, both private and public employees. Another interesting curiosity concerns the fact that initially the amount of the thirteenth changed according to the contractual category to which it belonged. This obviously involved a certain inequality of treatment among the workers themselves, which was only overcome in the years.
