EFFAT engages in battle with FLAI to say NO to underpayment and gang masters

Be Aware > Caporalato > EFFAT engages in battle with FLAI to say NO to underpayment and gang masters

The primary objective of this campaign is to meet the labourers involved in the various sowing and harvesting campaigns in the territories of southern Italy in order to inform them directly about their rights, the respect of contracts and wages and the new opportunities offered by Italian Law 199 of 2016 on caporalato (exploitation by illegal intermediaries or gang masters), which is beginning to bear fruit thanks mainly to arrests and measures decreed by the judicial authorities in the last few weeks. The campaign therefore involves capillary actions in the fields, squares and ghettos, where workers are often “recruited” by caporali.
