Bcc banks, towards a request for an increase equal to Abi and no sacrifices

4 min read


The 36,500 bankers of the BCC follow those of the Abi banks, whose salary scales were approved in 2001. Thus in the union platform for the renewal of the contract which expired at the end of 2022, the unions (Fabi, First, Fisac, Uilca and Ugl credit) are preparing to ask Federcasse for a 435 euro increase when fully operational for the typical figure in the sector. Plus they also claim arrears. The final document, in the next few hours, will arrive on the desks of the general secretaries, Lando Maria Sileoni, Riccardo Colombani, Susy Esposito, Fulvio Furlan and Domenico Pota (national secretary of Ugl credit) for their final green light and will then be presented to the workers’ assemblies.

The coordinated text of the 2022 contract has been signed

Everything happens in the aftermath of the signing, yesterday, in Florence between Federcasse and the unions of the coordinated text of the previous contract for management and professional areas, signed in June 2022. Since then, says the vice-president of Federcasse and president of the union delegation Matteo Spanò, 18 months have passed «characterised by a close, at times complex, discussion which has allowed us, among other things, to update the provisions regarding new professional profiles and to renew, after 15 years, also the contract of Managers of the mutual banks”. An important political signal in the sector, which «in this case also anticipates and gives indications to what will be the next renewal in Abi, where the managers’ contract expired in 2015», says Luca Bertinotti, national secretary of Fabi which in cooperative credit it has almost two thirds of members. Yesterday’s meeting also led to the 12-month extension of the national agreement on union eligibility.

The meetings and the start of negotiations by February

«After the workers’ green light, we expect negotiations to start by February next year», says Bertinotti, with the aim of arriving at a summary quickly, already by Easter. As the trade unionist summarizes us, the requests «concern 4 political areas of intervention. The first is economic and, in addition to the increase of 435 euros and the arrears, provides for a review and adjustment of the modal allowances of the branch manager and vice manager”. Among the other economic demands there are also two further increases in seniority tables and the increase in the percentages relating to social security contributions (which today are 5.70% for new hires) and healthcare contributions, including that relating to long-term care.

Bilateral bodies and control room on digital and participation

If the heart is represented by the economic part, there is also the request for a strengthening of the control of the contractual area and the development of active policies for employment with the development of the Bilateral Bodies in the sector, in particular that for employment (FOCC) and the one that will have to promote mutuality, support and subsidiarity interventions towards communities and territories. Among the objectives of the new contract there will also be the development of the national control room which was identified with the 2022 agreement but which has so far remained unimplemented. «The objective is twofold – summarizes Bertinotti -: the first is to govern the digital transition of the sector, the second is to give impetus to the participation and greater involvement of collaborators, also in governance and control bodies».

The new professional profiles

After the agreement signed last August on classifications, another of the areas that requires further updating and adaptation is that of professional profiles. Finally, there are all the interventions on the organization of work, with the request for 35 hours of work per week and the better regulation of professional and territorial mobility, the conciliation of work-life times and equal opportunities, the increase in the percentages of time, gender, equality and inclusion policies, agile working and teleworking, as well as work-related stress and commercial pressures.
