Motion for a European Parliament resolution on temporary contracts in schools: the Mascolo judgment  

The European Parliament,

–       having regard to Rule 133 of its Rules of Procedure,

A.     whereas on 26 November 2014, the European Court of Justice handed down the Mascolo judgment (Joined Cases C-22/13, C-61/13 to C-63/13 and C-418/13), condemning the misuse of a succession of fixed‑term contracts to fill vacancies in the education system and inviting the Italian State to intervene rapidly to bring to an end to the scourge of unstable employment;

B.     whereas the Italian Government, by way of Article 12 of Decree Law 2994 of 27 March 2015 on the ‘reform of the national education and training system and restructuring of the legislation in force’, has attempted to resolve the issue of unstable employment in schools in its own way;

C.     whereas that article sets the maximum duration of fixed‑term contracts at 36 months, except in cases where that threshold has already been exceeded;

1.      Calls on the Commission to take steps to ensure that Italy complies in full with the Mascolo judgment;

2.      Calls on the Commission to adopt the necessary measures to ensure that the shameful situation of unstable employment in schools in Europe is brought to an end.
