Italian central govt set to cut 4,028 jobs

Rome, November 13 - Italian Civil Service Minister Filippo Patroni Griffi told trade unions on Tuesday that central government departments are set to cut 4,028 non-management jobs. The cuts, which will also see 48 top-level managers and 439 second-level managers leave the departments, should generate savings of around 342 million euros a year. Griffi said the government will subsequently announce staff reductions for the justice ministry and national insurance agency INPS, which were excluded from this round of cuts. The staff reductions are part of a package passed earlier this year aimed at saving 26 billion euros over the next three years following a review of public spending. The government said it intends to cut 10% of non-managerial staff and 20% of managers in Italy's large public administration. Premier Mario Monti's emergency administration said in July that this should translate into the loss of around 24,000 civil service jobs. Around 11,000 of those employees work in government ministries and public bodies that do not have economic functions, while the other 13,000 work for local administrations, according to a technical report on the review. Only 8,000 of those employees have the requirements to obtain early retirement, the report said.
