Dignity of work to prevail over other interests - Mattarella

Dignity of work to prevail over other interests - Mattarella

'Institutions are called to improve safety and prevention'

ROME, 05 December 2023, 12:28

Redazione ANSA




The dignity of work and workplace safety must prevail over all other interests, President Sergio Mattarella said on Tuesday.
    "In the face of deaths at work or due to work, the institutions of the Republic, at every level, have the duty to raise safety levels and take every possible action to reduce risks and promote a culture of prevention," said Mattarella at the Star of Merit for Labour award ceremony at the Quirinale Palace in Rome.
    "The dignity of work and the care of life must prevail over any other interest," he added.
    The head of state highlighted the current "fragmentation" of labour, "even in a context where employment indicators show positive signs overall".
    "On the one hand there is stable employment, qualified professional labour, avant-garde sectors, quality-conscious business organisation," he said.
    "On the other hand, (there are) unemployment, low wages, precariousness, illegal recruitment, the delayed entry of young people and women into the labour market, imbalances in wages for equal work," he continued, insisting on the importance of fully implementing the constitutional principle of worker-centred labour policies. "When the Constitution talks about a Republic founded on labour, it does not propose the idea of work as a commodity, but rather of the 'person who works' as a protagonist and, as a citizen, as the subject of rights and responsibilities," said Mattarella, expressing his appreciation for a programme of activities culminating in a national convention titled 'A new humanism of work' in 2024.
    "Humanism means precisely putting the person at the centre, and it is on this path that the implementation of our Constitution can best proceed, keeping pace with the giant, unprecedented challenges of the times," he continued.
    Mattarella also said that the "value and respect for life must be reaffirmed with determination in every sphere, circumstance and dimension" on the day that the funeral of Giulia Cecchettin, the 22-year-old Padua University student murdered by her ex boyfriend Filippo Turetta on November 11, is taking place.
