Crackdown on illegal work and procurement to stop the massacre

Crackdown on illegal work and irregular contracts, up to the ban on tenders. The government develops the plan to strengthen health and safety at work: more sanctions, including criminal sanctions, more inspectors and controls, training and qualification of companies. After the tragedy on the construction site in Florence where five workers lost their lives, the objective – shared by all – is to stop the massacre at work and combat undeclared work. The executive is working on an organic measure that will go to the next Council of Ministers. And first, on Monday 26 February, he will see the unions and businesses convened at Palazzo Chigi starting from 8.30. While CGIL and UIL go on strike and the CISL mobilizes.

The framework of the measures under study emerges at the end of today's meeting of the Council of Ministers which opens with the information from the Minister of Labour, Marina Calderone. More severe measures: on the table is a ban from procurement from two to five years in the event of serious violations or proven criminal liability for health and safety crimes. And for irregular businesses there will also be a stop to tax and social security benefits. The tightening of administrative sanctions on illegal and irregular work and the return of criminal offenses in contracting, subcontracting and illicit administration are on the way.

There is no mention of introducing the crime of homicide at work, to which the Minister of Justice, Carlo Nordio, says he is “against”, who in this regard recalls the experience of road homicide, which “has dramatically increased the punishment” and accidents “did not decrease but increased”. Instead, we are thinking about a coordination rule for the public prosecutor's offices on investigative activities.

A theme relaunched by the unions in the streets. The leaders of CGIL and UIL, on the day of the two-hour strike proclaimed together with the builders and metalworkers to say “Never again deaths at work”, demonstrate in Florence in the area of the construction site of the tragedy. And they ask the government to open “a serious negotiation, I've already heard too much talk”, attacks Maurizio Landini, “it's not the usual film where they keep us in Palazzo Chigi for half an hour and then do what they want”. An aspect that Pierpaolo Bombardieri also highlights: “We would like to give our contribution and have written texts. If the government thinks of informing us on what it has already decided we are on the wrong path”. Ready to move forward “if a new path doesn't start on Monday, until we arrive at a demonstration in Rome”, warns Landini.

In the crosshairs are maximum discount contracts and cascade subcontracts, the request to invest more in prevention, extend the protections provided in public contracts to private contracts, and establish the points-based driving licence. The CISL does not go on strike but starts a mobilization with assemblies in the workplace and in the territories and launches a “responsibility pact”, together with a decalogue of proposals, which commits the government, institutions, bodies and social partners in a “strategy national” to “stop the trail of blood”, says Luigi Sbarra. Who appreciates the meeting called for Monday by the government, “a good signal” to restart the discussion, which must be “structured and permanent”.

Increasing controls is the other front to focus on. The data confirms a critical picture: in 2023 in construction inspections the level of irregularity was equal to 76% and above 85% in the case of companies engaged in work linked to the 110% Superbonus, as Calderone reports to the Council of Ministers.
The minister also takes stock of the inspectors – 3,198 of the National Labor Inspectorate, to which is added the inspection staff of the Carabinieri Unit, INPS and INAIL – and assures that this year it will be possible to do 40% more of checks compared to 2023. And that hiring will be released to increase the INL contingent by 500 units.
