Fiat and unions reached a final accord for a car plant in Pomigliano

Article by Christian A., on January 1, 2011

The Fismic union recently said that Fiat S.p.A. and unions have entered a final accord for a car plant in Pomigliano, Italy, making way for investments at the site that will produce Panda minicars.

Specifically, the Fim, Fismic, Uglm, Uilm and Associazione Quadri unions signed agreements that will allow 5,600 employees to be hired in January 2011 at the factory near Naples.

Robert Di Maulo, head of the Fismic union said that there are two types of labor unions, one that conducts strikes and another that negotiates agreements.

Early in 2010, Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne had proposed shifting production of its best-selling Panda from Poland to the underused Pomigliano plant and invest EUR700 million ($920 million) in the factory if unions agree on a plan that includes adding shifts and implementing a six-day workweek.

The recent agreement follows a prior deal that was reached with most of the unions at Fiat's Mirafiori plant. The FIOM union did not sign the Mirafiori agreement and plans to strike for eight hours on Jan. 28, 2011. [via autonews - sub. required]
