Thursday 13 June at 19.00 pm, Unquestionable Defence: "is the Navy marinating the unions?"

12/06/24

We begin a second round of meetings with the union representatives of the individual armed forces.

Let us remember that the reform of the military representations did not depend on a whim or on a party (much less on this newspaper...), but on the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).

The key ruling in this context was the ECHR ruling in the case "Matelly v. France" (2014): it ruled that the absolute ban on military personnel from forming or joining trade unions is a violation of Article 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which guarantees freedom of association.

This decision influenced regulations and rulings in various European countries, including Italy, leading to ruling of the Italian Constitutional Court of 2018 which paved the way for the establishment of military unions.

dura lex sed lex so.

But how is the "running in" of the new system going in the armed forces?

For an update, we invited Thursday 13 June at 19.00 pm the representatives of the Navy: SINAM, SIM MM, USMIA.

See you there!
