    Background: The Italian government held an important meeting today with members of Italy's main three trade unions to discuss the country's future economic plans. Another meeting will be held tomorrow with representatives of the political parties who support the minority Christian democratic government of Giulio Andreotti. From these meetings the future of the government will be decided. The trade unions have already said that unless their demands are met they will sta???e a general strike in mid January. The parties are pressing the Christian democrats into forming a government of national unity, which would include the Communists.
