Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The left CGIL is already on its own course. The government intends to break the agreement between the various unions by seeking seperate accords with the conservative unions. In that the conservative CISL and UIL have accepted. Both the industrialists and the government are seeking a conflict by deliberately cutting out the largest and most militant union.

So the leftist unions will be a source of agitation in the coming months. Unlike the students we can expect violence and a radicalization of the situation.

It's exactly what this government wants. But they behave more like apprentice sorcerers which leaves the outcome wide open.
