Workers employed in the textile and clothing sector of Italy would get an €118 increase in wages by 2016, as part of the renewal of the national labor contract for textiles and clothing.
 
The Sistema Moda Italia (SMI), Italy’s fashion system as well as association of textile entrepreneurs, has signed a draft agreement with trade and labor union organizations of the country for the renewal of the national labor contract for textiles and clothing.
 
According to a statement issued by the Italian Federation of Textile Chemistry Energy Manufacturing Workers (FILCTEM—CGIL), the Italian fashion system has signed the agreement draft with FILCTEM—CGIL and the Italian Trade Union of Workers in the Fashion, Energy and Chemical sectors (FEMCA—CSIL).
 
As per the agreement, the national labor contract for textiles and clothing that expired on March 31, 2013, has been renewed for the period up to March 31, 2016. 
 
The agreement provides for an overall average increase of €118 in wages of workers employed in the sector, divided into four stages. The increment in the wages would be applicable such as: On January 1, 2014, wages would be raised by €26; on November 1, 2014, wages would be increased by again €26; wages would be hiked by €46 on September 1, 2015; and on March 1, 2016, wages would be raised by €20.
 
Under the agreement, the workers would also be provided with a ‘one-off’ increase of €250 in wages, which would be divided into two stages: the first €125 would be given in February 2014, and the second €125, would be provided in June 2014.
 
Textile and apparel enterprises would also be allocated an additional amount of €560, in context of their productivity, during the 2014 to 2015 period.
 
In October 2013, the negotiations for the renewal of the contract were stalled by the labor unions as they did not accept the proposals made by the SMI. The SMI had presented a package of proposals for the renewal of the contract in March 2012, for a negotiation between the unions and the employers. 
 
The national labor contract for textiles and clothing affects nearly 500,000 people who are employed in the sector, and is the most important contract of the Italian manufacturing industry.
