Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site


Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has made reforming the Italian labour market a priority for his government. Chiara Benassi and Niccolo Durazzi assess the argument that Italy?s trade unions are an obstacle to reforms on the basis that they support only their core membership, rather than a broader agenda which includes ?atypical? workers such as agency staff. They argue that unions have taken on a much broader stance than they are typically credited with and that if Renzi is serious about reforming the country?s labour market it would be beneficial to work with unions rather than against them.
