Lettori In Italian Universities

EDM number 886 in 2016-17, proposed by Deidre Brock on 26/01/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Employment and Higher education.

That this House notes the ongoing concerns about disparity in employment rights of UK citizens and other non-Italian nationals who work as lettori in Italian universities; recognises that six rulings in the Court of Justice of the European Union found Italy to be discriminating against non-Italian lecturers with regards to length of contracts, access to jobs and fair and equal treatment on salary increments, pension and social security rights; further notes that 29 January 2017 marks six years since Italy's Gelmini law came into force which closed down the right of non-Italian workers to have their claims for compensation assessed in a domestic court; notes that most lettori have been involved in litigation for over 20 years; and urges the Government, during ongoing Brexit negotiations, to ensure steps are taken to protect the rights and fair treatment of UK citizens working in Italy.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs.
