UNREST IN ITALY

IDLE INDUSTRIES

Allied Actions Allegedly

Cause Friction

N.Z. Press Association —Copyright Rcc. 11.30 a.m. LONDON, July 20. Political strikes and disturbances were staged last week in many of the chief cities of Northern Italy, partly as a protest against the Allied occupation authorities' supposed tendency to favour capitalist interests, says Reuters Rome correspondent. The disturbances occurred against a background of economic deadlock, partly resulting from the enforced idleness of the majority of workers through lack of fuel and raw materials. Social legislation compels idle industries to maintain a full staff at three-quarters of the normal salary. This is paid from State subsidies. The majority of factory owners are mostly hiding or imprisoned and the management has passed' into the hands of commissioners who are often assisted by workers' factory councils. These arrangements are subject to constant negotiation between the Allied Military Government and various half-recognised committees of national liberation.

General unrest and friction short of a general strike were shown in Venice yesterday arising from" the Allied nomination of a purge commission superseding those nominated by various local liberation committees.. Similar reasons are causing other local strikes and unrest.
