Alcoa workers begin march on Rome from Civitavecchia

(ASNA) - Rome, August 30 - A group of 56 workers and labor union representatives from the Alcoa aluminum plant on the island of Sardinia began a 'march on Rome' Thursday morning from the port city of Civitavecchia approximately 70 kilometers from Italy's capital city. Labor unions and the government have been locked in a dispute with the American aluminum giant over the company's move to shut down a smelter and put hundreds of jobs at risk. Alcoa has promised to keep all workers at its Portovesme plant in Sardinia employed through the end of the year, but it plans to start powering down the smelter on September 1.
