MANEUVER, HARMONIZATIONS, EXTENSIONS THE NEW BPER

After months of negotiation, agreements were reached on the long-awaited maneuver on generational change and on the harmonization of the most important items of the contractual provisions.

Many difficulties faced in dealing with these fundamental items, especially in the absence of the new Business Plan and the objectives and reorganizations that it may present.

For FABI it was essential to acquire certainty for all the more than 18,000 workers of the BPER Group: the historical ones and the more recent ones coming from UNIPOL, UBI / UBIS and ISP.

The following are the main agreements reached:

MANEUVER on STAFF (for all the details see the agreement )

«The signed package of agreements respects people, enhances contractual histories, pays attention to territories and projects BPER towards the future. Now we expect to conclude the harmonization and to discuss the new industrial plan » comments the national secretary of FABI, Mattia Pari .

“With the agreements reached on this day, the solidity of trade union relations in the Bper group is confirmed and a substantial step forward is achieved towards the complete harmonization of the recently acquired realities (formerly UNIPOL, formerly UBI / UBIS, formerly ISP), simultaneously guaranteeing the historical workers of the group with social security, assistance and commuting agreements. Furthermore, with the significant number of hires due to the personnel maneuver, generational turnover is ensured by relating departures and hires, also with support for the workforce in the territories. We are now ready to face the new challenges that 2022 will propose to us » observes the coordinator of the BPER Group, Antonella Sboro .
