Freshly freed union coordinator Carlo Pallavicini draws a connection between the successful struggles of the workers organized in SI Cobas and the current wave of repression against the basis union.

Currently, the unions fight for a renewal of the National Collective Agreement for the logistics industry that ran out in 2019 already.
In addition, TNT-Fedex now wants to close down the warehouse in Piacenza to get rid of the militant workforce.
