The issues in this sector are as follows:
The union is opposed to the draft new Staff Regulations
The union is opposed to the liberalization of the electricity market
The union is fighting for the preservation of a public service in the field of water, gas and electricity distribution.
The union was consulted in autumn 2009 by the State Council on a draft law on the governance of public institutions that should apply to SGIs, inspired by the same management models of private companies, the same models of good governance according to the OECD and presents a barely modified copy of the project that was swept aside by the people in June 2008. The SIT persists in its disagreement.
