The Sistema Moda Italia (SMI), Italy’s Fashion System as well as association of textile entrepreneurs has signed the final agreement for the renewal of the national labor contract for textiles and clothing, which proposes a wage increase of €118 for textile and garment workers in the country by 2016.
 
Last December, the SMI had signed a draft agreement with trade and labor union organizations of the country, in order to renew the national labor contract for textiles and clothing that had expired on March 31, 2013.
 
The SMI president Claudio Marenzi and the general secretaries of the Italian Federation of Textile Chemistry Energy Manufacturing Workers (FILCTEM—CGIL), the Italian Trade Union of Workers in the Fashion, Energy and Chemical sectors (FEMCA—CSIL), and Italian Union of Textile, Energy and Chemical Workers (UILTEC—UIL), signed the agreement.
 
As per the agreement, the national labor contract for textiles and clothing 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.
 
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.
