Fincantieri signed a cooperation protocol with the autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia and the trade unions Cgil, Cisl and Uil, aimed at carrying out a series of initiatives to encourage job placement processes, stimulate local employment, especially youth employment, thus contributing to the social and economic development of the regional territory, the company said in its press release.
The company, the Region and the trade unions will work in close coooperation on matters of mutual interest in order to: enhance information and communication activities on employment initiatives and opportunities, both for workers and for the companies operating in the shipbuilding sector, particularly those at the Monfalcone yard; increase employment opportunities and encourage entry processes into the job market, especially for young people; identify the most effective and opportune ways to fulfil the requirements under the special laws in favor of the most vulnerable workers; foster the best possible match between training needs and offer and the development of vocational education and training careers consistent with the areas which are strongly connected to the production system; promote employment quality by offering a specific service to the local communities and taking into account the needs of the ever-changing labor market.
Specifically, the cooperation will call for, among other activities, the opening of a window of the Regional Employment Agency at the Monfalcone shipyard, the promotion of internships within the company and the subcontractors, as well as orientation initiatives. In order to ensure the effectiveness of the activities detailed in the protocol, a joint working group will also be set up. It will consist of no more than three representatives for each of the signatory parties and, when deemed necessary, it will be open to other players of training organizations, schools, universities and technical-professional centers of the region.
