TRADE UNION STATEMENT-Reuters'journalists on strike in Italy

MILAN, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Reuters’journalists in Italy are on strike on Friday in protest against the company’s announcement that more job cuts remain absolutely necessary despite a significant number of colleagues are leaving the company under a voluntary redundancy scheme. Reuters’journalists in Italy ask for any further plan on job cuts to be put on hold while a planned reorganisation of the newsroom takes off as it would be in everybody’s best interest that the proposed changes are introduced amid the necessary cooperation and reciprocal trust. The Italian journalists union representatives remain open to continue discussions with the company over the best course of action, requesting that any further cuts are carried out solely on a voluntary basis.
