POV issue[edit]

It looks strange to me that a trade union so described:

It never took advantage of workers' co-determination rights, instead it often organized scabs during strikes and spied on the other unions for the employers.

would have been the third most popular trade union in Italy (see Italian article about this). Given the paragraph is unreferenced, are we sure there isn't a POV issue here? --Cyclopia 19:19, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

All the information in that paragraph is taken from the book by Gerhard Feldbauer listed in the references section. Inline citations just don't make much sense in articles as short as this one. The union's popularity is mostly a result of its close relations to the fascist movement in Italy.--Carabinieri 20:26, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
And is the Feldbauer book a NPOV one? I don't know -I didn't read it. Are there, for example, documents backing Feldbauer assertions? If so, wouldn't it be better to cite them than the book? I don't want to defend the UGL or the Italian neofascist movements, I just want ground for such assertions that, as they are written here, sound quite libelous. --Cyclopia 14:24, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
