203 jobs have been identified by the Commission on heavy-duty jobs that could enter the list of those who can anticipate retirement due to the wearying value of work. They range from janitors to domestic workers, from taxi drivers to carers, passing through welders and tram workers. There are also primary school teachers and mine machinery operators. And again clerks and cashiers, foresters and warehouse workers.
The Commission chaired by the former minister Cesare Damiano has created the list that will be examined by the Government, the ministries of Labor and the Economy in particular, and Parliament.
These jobs would give the right to early retirement, leaving the world of work at 63 through the social Ape. The study group recalculated the statistical indices provided by Inps, Inail and Istat for the assessment of the physical and psychosocial fatigue of the tasks performed.
the categories 15 are currently at risk for 65 jobs. 27 would be added, for now only potential, reaching 203 jobs, which have an above average combined index of occupational diseases and accidents.
The pension for half a million workers would change. This enlargement of the list of heavy-duty works would make it possible to define a check which starts at the age of 63 and 36 years of contributions, with an amount up to 1,500 euros which leads up to the retirement age. It would apply to those who have carried out any of the duties considered burdensome for 6 years in the past 7 years or 7 in the last 10 years.
The new categories would lead to many more workers leaving the world of work early. In construction, for example, there would be 20,000 possible exits of workers. At the end of 2021 the trial of Quota 100 expires and, if it were not renewed, far fewer workers could have an early retirement. The government’s idea is to replace it with this provision. The Social Ape has existed for some years already. Thousands of workers used it between 2017 and 2020, but many requests, 61%, were rejected due to the specific nature of the job codes indicated.
