Prove generali di riforma del lavoro pubblico - The essay deals with the most controversial issues of the so-called "Brunetta law of delegation", which aims at reforming the regulation of employment in the public sector. Taking into consideration the numerous requests for a review of the sources of regulation in this field, the reform strengthens the role of statutes, while decreases the role of collective bargaining, especially at the local level. The reform intervenes on the sensitive relationship between political and administrative power as well, in order to enhance management independence and to invest management with responsibility to reach efficiency and productivity, even through a stronger use of disciplinary measures. Public administration transparency and accountability is another important issue of this reform. In particular, the aim is to get involved citizens and customers in the first hand through measures - even at the judicial level - which might boost the most inefficient and uncommitted sectors. From a general perspective, this reform is noteworthy as it tries to introduce elements of renewal and to upgrade the public sector. Nevertheless, the proposed measures seem rough and not well-assessed, leading to solutions that often appear demagogic and unable to introduce elements of concrete renewal.
