“Quota 100 turned out to be a marginal and temporary measure, which involved only one third of the people who had acquired the right and left the pension prospect unaltered for the vast majority of male and female workers”. This is the declaration of the confederal secretary CGIL, Christian Ferrari, commenting on the analysis by INPS and UPB. The data confirm “the validity of the estimates that CGIL had made at the time, both on the audience involved in the measure and on the resources used. Our forecasts were disputed by many. , but the numbers have given us unequivocally right “, says the trade unionist.” Our position – explains the head of public welfare for the national CGIL, Ezio Cigna – remains the same: we need to include elements of solidarity in the system, a real social security reform is needed that structurally and definitively goes beyond the Monti-Fornero law. ” retirement in a contributory system has “profoundly changed: not all those who perfect the right to a pension decide to leave early”, observes the trade unionist. By now, two thirds of the positions are calculated with the contribution. This aspect must also be considered for the purpose of quantifying the financial impact, which would be much lower than the current assessments, of the proposed changes to the social security system “. Even quota 102, according to Ferrari,” is a useless measure, which does not gives no answer. The point was not to make the exit from ‘Quota 100’ more gradual, but to reform the system as a whole. It is necessary that the Government reopen as soon as possible the discussion table on pensions, which was abruptly interrupted in February, due to the events linked to the geopolitical crisis. Even if the emergency is not overcome, the issue of pensions must be addressed immediately, to give answers and certainties to people, and not waved as a slogan in the next electoral campaign “. According to the confederal secretary ” it is therefore necessary, on the basis of the proposals contained in the unitary platform of Cgil, Cisl and Uil, to proceed along the path of a reform that guarantees flexibility in leaving for all after the age of 62, with interventions that take into account the condition of women, of intermittent and precocious workers, of heavy and strenuous jobs, and introducing a contributory pension guarantee for the youngest, otherwise destined for a future as poor retirees “.
