Employees Go on Strike Against Roberto Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli storefront (Sloane Street)

More than 200 employees of Roberto Cavalli’s flagship store on Florence’s luxury shopping street Via Tornabuoni on Nov. 19. These employees are protesting the decision to mobilize 66 employees, as mandated by the parent company Clessidra. Backed by the RSU [Unitary Union Representative], Filctem-CGIL, CISL and Femca Uiltec UIL, the employees of Roberto Cavalli strongly disagree with the operation to mobilize their peers. It was announced in Oct. 2015 that chief executive officer Renato Semerari would begin to reorganize and restructure the Cavalli company, which would result in the downsizing of the Florence factory location. With the strike, employees hope to gain transparency from the board of the company and emphasis the lack of employee support within the Roberto Cavalli business.
