In recent years, issues of representativeness and workplace representation have come to the forefront of public debate on industrial relations. Particularly contentious has been the conclusion of ‘separate agreements’ signed by only some of the major trade union confederations or their affiliated sectoral federations, notably in the metalworking sector (*IT0902059I* , *IT0107193F* , *IT0305204F* , *IT0911029I* ). They have caused disputes over the effectiveness of such non-unitary deals, and raised questions about how the representativeness of signatories is assessed.  www.eurofound.europa.eu/ef/observatories/eurwork/articles/cgil-refuses-to-sign-agreement-on-collective-bargaining-reform  www.eurofound.europa.eu/ef/observatories/eurwork/articles/undefined-working-conditions/new-metalworking-collective-agreement-signed-despite-cgil-opposition  www.eurofound.europa.eu/ef/observatories/eurwork/articles/metalworking-agreement-signed-without-fiom-cgil  www.eurofound.europa.eu/ef/observatories/eurwork/articles/industrial-relations/trade-unions-split-over-metalworking-sector-agreement

There have been deep divisions between Italy’s three main trade union confederations over the past decade. Since the early 2000s, united union action has been jeopardised by differences of opinion and actual splits between the General Confederation of Italian Workers (Cgil ), the Italian Confederation of Workers’ Unions (Cisl ) and the Union of Italian Workers (Uil ). There have been significant disputes over the signing of important agreements both at national and sectoral levels.  http://www.cgil.it/  http://www.cisl.it/sito.nsf  http://uil.it/
