E’ scomparso Giorgio Ballistreri, dirigente socialista e fondatore della Uil

All’età di 90 anni è scomparso Giorgio Ballistreri, dirigente socialista e uomo politico, padre di Maurizio, commissario del Psi di Messina.

Giorgio Ballistreri nel dopoguerra, duranti gli studi universitari compiuti nella Facoltà di Scienze Politiche a Palermo, partecipò alla ricostruzione del socialismo democratico e autonomista e alla fondazione della Uil nel 1950 con Italo Viglianesi.

Funzionario statale, ricoprì numerosi incarichi al vertice del sindacato: segretario generale della Uil di Messina, componente dell’Esecutivo nazionale della Confederazione e del direttivo della Federazione unitaria nazionale Cgil-Cisl-Uil, presidente e segretario regionale della Feneal, il sindacato delle costruzioni della Uil. Sostenitore di una visione gradualista dell’azione sindacale, ispirato ai modelli sindacali del riformismo europeo per un equilibrio tra dialogo sociale, contrattazione e conflitto è stato protagonista degli “anni ruggenti” del sindacalismo italiano, tra il 1969 e il 1980, segnati da nuove frontiere dei diritti dei lavoratori.

Esponente del Partito socialista, è stato presidente dello Sdi di Messina e ha ricoperto anche importanti incarichi di gestione: consigliere di amministrazione dell’Ente Siciliano Partecipazioni Industriali, dell’Istituto Regionale per il Credito alla Cooperazione, dell’Iacp, della Cassa e Scuola edile di Messina, del comitato provinciale Inps.

Sino all’ultimo Giorgio Ballistreri ha speso le proprie energie sul versante sociale, nella qualità di presidente dell’Istituto di studi “EuroMed”.

Per la sua azione sociale e di leader sindacale ha avuto numerosi riconoscimenti: l’onorificenza di commendatore al Merito della Repubblica, la laurea honoris causa in Scienze Politiche dell’Università di Studi Superiori di New York, il libro “Il sindacato tra storia e attualità”, curato da un gruppo di studiosi universitari, edito nel 2004 da Edas e a lui dedicato.

Il 22 dicembre 2000, da presidente della Uil di Messina aveva voluto che nella piazza storica della sua città, dove con un gruppo di militanti socialisti e repubblicani costituì 50 anni prima la camera sindacale provinciale, quella del Duomo cattedrale, fosse realizzato un Monumento in bronzo dedicato al lavoro, “per ribadire – come si legge in un libro scritto per l’occasione – che la globalizzazione e il liberismo non possono pregiudicare il valore del lavoro e la centralità dell’uomo con i suoi diritti, individuali e collettivi”.

Tra i messaggi quello di Giorgio Benvenuto, leader storico del sindacalismo italiano, che ha ricordato come Ballistreri sia “stato un grande dirigente sindacale. Tenace organizzatore e costruttore del sindacato. Innovatore”.
I funerali si sono svolti nel Duomo di Messina, dove la figura di Ballistreri è stata ricordata dal prof. Santi Fedele, ordinario di Storia contemporanea nell’Università di Messina.

  21. I drop a leave a response each time I like a post on a website or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.
    Usually it's caused by the sincerness displayed in the article I read. And after this post "E'
    scomparso Giorgio Ballistreri, dirigente socialista e fondatore della Uil". I was moved enough to drop a leave a responsea response :-P I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it only me or does it look like like some of these comments come across like left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I'd like to keep up with you. Could you list every one of all your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
