A- A A+

On 19 July 2023 a joint letter  from the USF Unions in EUI Florence, ERC Ispra and ETF Torino was delivered via PEC by lawyer Michela Velardo to the Italian Ministry of Health and to Central office of JSIS. Main points addressed as critical:

  • the agreement introduces a voluntary adherence to SSN, but also an obligation to adhere and a sort of sanctions regime (needs a formal regulation by law as protected by Art 32 of Italian constitution),
  • the agreement introduces a special Tessera Sanitaria for the health services, but does not appear to have the value of tax code (codice fiscale), nor can it be used applying the law 104/1992 (disabilities protection)

A copy has also been delivered to the DG HR of the European Commission (DDG Ch. Roques and Director M. U. Moricca) as well as to the EUI management (the President and the Secretary General), and management of ETF and ERC Ispra
