To give support and implementation to the national UIL awareness campaign “NO TO GHOST WORKERS”, the UIL of Ravenna has formulated a questionnaire aimed at investigating the forms of precarious employment in the provincial territory, also taking into account how this condition affects life and well-being of male and female workers.

Precarious work today takes on various forms: those who have a fixed-term, seasonal or atypical contract are precarious, those who have an involuntary part-time contract are precarious, those who, despite having stable employment, have an insufficient salary to satisfy basic needs, are precarious. of daily life.

Even if part of the policy states that jobs have grown, this new occupation is not stable and is poorly paid. Involved in this dynamic are above all the most vulnerable groups such as women, young people and foreigners.

The INPS Observatory on precarious employment informs us that 80% of the employment relationships activated in 2023 for young people up to 29 years of age are temporary. In recent years, part-time employment has grown continuously, in 2022 the majority of part-time employed aged 15-64 in Italy, 57.9%, are in this working hours regime not by free choice.

Together with Spain, this is the highest share among the major nations. In parallel, there are other phenomena attributable to precarious employment such as fake VAT numbers, collaborations, internships which very often do not lead to stabilization capable of providing economic security and life plans.

In this context, real wages have increased very slowly, also thanks to the inflationary period, creating certain situations in which, although working, one is not able to lead a dignified life. Italy is the only country in the eurozone where wages have fallen in the last thirty years.

The recent Istat 2024 report shows that the percentage of workers who find themselves in conditions of poverty and work vulnerability is growing. In 2022, workers living in a family at risk of poverty in the EU27 constitute 8.5% of the total. In recent years, the share of employed people at risk of poverty in Italy has increased steadily, going from 9.5% in 2010 to 11.5% in 2022 and the gap compared to the European average has grown.

It is necessary to reverse this trend in order to guarantee stable work, especially for the new generations, accompanied by guarantees in terms of remuneration.

The future is built on stability and certainty, not on precariousness.

For all these reasons, the UIL of Ravenna, in addition to relaunching, in the month of April, the commercials of the national UIL campaign in the main multiplex cinema of Ravenna, has set up a dedicated page on its website WWW.UIL-RAVENNA.IT where the workers and precarious workers can find all the necessary information both for income support practices (NASPI, Agricultural Unemployment, DIS-COLL, etc.) and of a fiscal nature (CAF x ISEE and 730 forms) and also the contact details of union officials for contractual and possibly litigation support.

At the end of the survey aimed at investigating the precarious conditions in the provincial territory, it will also be possible to leave a testimony anonymously. We need the voices of workers to be able to then relaunch the appropriate political-union proposals to limit the abuse of precarious forms of work.
