The Italian union FILCAMS-CGIL is organizing actions to contest the recent firing of a union leader in Rome. The union representative, employed at the unit for 16 years, had denounced the inadequate kitchen ventilation, intolerable psychological pressure on employees and the lack of training, especially on health and safety, which have resulted in many incidents.

The IUF supports the union's efforts to force McDonald's to respect the rights of their employees and to oppose the dismissal of their union leader. Should the situation escalate, the IUF will call on affiliates to actively join the campaign.
