Pensions, parties compete to promise exemptions from the Fornero law, Anief asks the school to return to quota 96 with free redemption of the degree

Enough exceptions to the Fornero law: From January 2023, after four years of exceptions, those who retire will be able to use only the ordinary exit rules, then leave work at 67 or with almost 43 years of contributions.

In this way, the projects harmed hundreds of thousands of workers who, with their families, had already counted on leaving the service a few years in advance: aware of the general dissatisfaction, “the parties in the election campaign, especially on the right, are competing to propose alternative solutions”, writes the national press today.

“What is needed is a restoration of the requirements before Fornero, especially for certain sectors such as the school, because after the flop of quota 102 – he comments today Marcello Pacifico, National President Anief – we cannot afford more empty jokes on the skin of those who have worked for decades and see themselves thrown into retirement at almost 70 years. The issue of pensions is therefore a priority in the next election campaign: in our opinion, in order to make the counter-reform sustainable, it is necessary to separate the INPS budget responsibilities and distinguish between welfare expenditure and pensions ”.

“Surely – continues the independent trade unionist – we cannot think of retiring workers at 67 and returning to the ‘pure’ Fornero law. Especially in school, a specific window, such as quota 96, is needed precisely because of the high burnout rate found in the category after the age of 60. And for everyone we must recognize the free redemption of the years of university education, as well as the desire several times by the president of the INPS Pasquale Tridico. Other paths, such as the advancement in exchange for the transformation of ​​the whole service to the contributory system, with cuts of even 30-40% of the allowance, cannot be considered satisfactory, but only half-hearted solutions, the result of populist mediations, which we hope will not be proposed again”, concludes Pacifico.


A few days ago during the 57th Federspev Congress, Marcello Pacifico, as organizational secretary of Confedir, also said that the time has come to “introduce inflation-adjusted checks and immediate TFS/TFS liquidation and a year’s advance for mothers. Furthermore, it is important that for tired professions and with a high percentage of burnout, such as school and health workers, hard work is recognized and therefore early exit around the age of 60 without restrictions.There is also an urgent need to approve exemptions from 1 January 2023 : the quality of the public service is also at stake “. Finally, the union said it was a supporter of all the proposals that intend to overcome the Fornero law by introducing quota 100 or 102 “flexible”, such as Antonello Orlando , an expert at the institute for studies of labor consultants.
