Roma Multiservizi, a facility management company operating in Rome, is to dismiss 669 employees.

The company, controlled by the Municipality of Rome through its in-house company AMA (51%), and by a large cooperative, Manutencoop (49%) has been discontinued the subcontracting agreement issued in 2016 concerning cleaning activities of underground stations, rolling stock and buses for the local public transport company (ATAC). In fact, those services have recently been assigned by means of public bids to new providers.

Subsequently, the management opened a collective dismissal procedure for the involved staff.

Unions are taking part in negotiations aimed at safeguarding redundant workers. They also called the Municipality of Rome to end subcontracting public services, opting for the hiring back of the involved workers by in-house companies, like AMA and ATAC. In the meantime, the municipality of Rome underwrote its commitment to make sure redundant workers will not be left without a job.
