Sistemi Informativi, the Italian subsidiary of IBM software group, announced the intention to dismiss 156 workers at the sites in Rome (135), Turin (6), Milan (12) and Perugia (3). The dismissals are attributed to the demand-supply crisis in the IT sector, declining profits and the difficulty in securing contracts with the public administration.

According to the trade unions the dismissals are due to 'irresponsible management'. Trade unions have announced protest actions and strikes against the restructuring plan. The first meeting between unions and the company was held on 27 June. Official negotiations will start in August.
