Religion teachers, 422 paper entries on the way but are in the 2004 competition: will the judge be in charge of the interims?

Among the unresolved problems of the school is that of approx 100,000 precarious religion teachers and waiting for the competition. The issue is being addressed on two levels. The first, which seems to be advancing at a faster pace, is the judicial one; the second is purely political-legislative.

The Supreme Court ruling

Let’s get in order and get started judgment of the Court of Cassation (n. rg. 11055/2017) which confirms the illegitimate repetition of fixed-term contracts of teachers of precarious religion who hold free and vacant chairs already in the legal staff.


Snadir – who initiated the appeals – explains that “the trial judge (Viterbo Court) had already acknowledged the plaintiffs’ reasons, as did the Rome Court of Appeal, but the Bar had filed an appeal in cassation, challenging these favorable rulings “… alleging that if anything corresponded to the plaintiffs alleging and proving the violation of the special rules of contracting and the existence of damages due to the consequent lack of stabilization … “.

In the course of the various degrees of sentencing, Snadir’s lawyers challenged the Ministry for not summoning him for three years, as indicated by Law no. 186/2003. At that time, the Supreme Court recognized these defenses stating that a subsequent compliance by the administration of the center to make the transfer of the classification of merits of the year 2004 (Legislative Decree No. 126 / 2019 Article 1-bis section 3).

How did this decision come about?

The Ermellini also refer to the ruling by which the Court of Justice of the European Union made clear on January 13 the need not to discriminate against precarious teachers of religion and other precarious teachers in public schools.

“The Court of Cassation, upholding the ruling of the Court of Appeal in Rome, ordered the Ministry of Education to pay all court costs,” he said. Orazio Ruscica, Snadir leader -. Now the policy must intervene to guarantee all teachers of precarious religion with more than 36 months of service an extraordinary procedure that will remedy the repeated abuse of fixed-term contracts.

Meanwhile, the approval of decree law 36 on the recruitment, training and professional career of teachers begins.

Among the amendments presented are also those on the stabilization of religion teachers: an extraordinary procedure non-selective for religion teachers with 36 months of service; the annual displacement of the classification from the extraordinary procedure to the total exhaustion of each ranking; the displacement of the 2004 ranking of merits in order to reach its full exhaustion next school year; Theincrease in equipment organic from 70% to 90% over a period of three years.

Still protesting the precarious

On June 16, Snadir held another protest rally in front of the Ministry.

At the end of the demonstration, representatives of the ministry asked to meet with the Snadir delegation, which reiterated previous requests.

Representatives of the ministry reported that the requests for amendments, which propose a solution to religious precariousness, had been submitted to Minister Bianchi, and that the request for further displacement of the 2004 merit classification was accepted. by the ministry and that for this procedure a formal request was submitted to the Mef to authorize the entry in the role after the displacement of the GM 2004 to the extent of 422 seats.

On the other hand, the extraordinary procedure remains to be defined, as has been done for precarious secondary school workers.
