And now even Amap’s own future, after the seizure of 20 million, seems to be in danger. This was stated by the unions, who have focused attention on the probable risks for employees.
“The banks have blocked the payment of salaries to the 686 Amap employees and activities related to the management of the integrated public water service in Palermo and in the more than 40 Municipalities of the Province could also be at risk. That is why we immediately request a summons to attend to the emergency and declare a state of agitation.”
This was stated by Calogero Guzzetta and Nino Musso from Filctem Cgil Palermo and Maurizio Terrani from UilTec Sicily-Palermo after learning of the decision of the judicial authority issued against Amap Spa and add: “We are waiting for justice to take its course but we are concerned about the future of workers and citizens. For this reason, on Monday, May 29, from 8 to 12, there will be a sit-in in front of the Palermo Prefecture headquarters”.
Federenergia Cisal: “Extremely concerned”
“We are extremely concerned about the future of Amap: the banking institutes in fact blocked the payment of salaries to 686 employees and the supplies could also be at risk, from fuels to substances for water treatment. We ask the institutions to intervene to avoid an emergency that could overwhelm Palermo and almost the entire metropolitan area. Says Giuseppe Badagliacca from Federenergia Cisal. “We are respectful of the work of the investigators and we hope that justice will take its course quickly, punishing any illegal behavior – continues Badagliacca – However, blocking the company’s liquidity risks having consequences even in a service as delicate as the water and, therefore, in hundreds of thousands of citizens”.
