Salario minimo e contrattazione collettiva
The paper addresses two aspects of the debate that has recently developed in Italy about the reform of the system of industrial relations. One is the introduction of a statutory minimum wage and the other is the reform of collective bargaining. These two problems are jointly analysed and a common solution is proposed. First, the wage-rates set by national collective agreements should be extended by law to all workers and to all firms, whether or not they are members of the associations that have signed the contract (the erga omnes clause). Second, these wage-rates should play the same role that statutory minimum wage play in those countries where they are set by the law. This means that any increase of the nationally-agreed wage-rates should no longer determine an equivalent increase of wages of all workers (as they actually do with the present system) but only of those workers who are paid below these minimum levels.
