Motion text

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.
