Rome, November 1 - Italian Industry Minister
Corrado Passera on Thursday criticized Fiat's decision to fire
19 workers at its biggest southern Italian plant in what it said
was to make room for left-wing unionised employees a court
ordered it to re-hire after they had been laid off in a jobs
stand-off.
"While I don't want to discuss the merit of internal
decisions, I don't like this move," said Passera on Sky
television.
"Fiat is a free company, and needs to evaluate the matter
internally.
"Certainly it is good news that Fiat confirmed it doesn't
intend to close any factories in Italy.
"We will do what is possible to ensure they be active and
productive, and not almost at a stand-still as they are today".
Fiat made the announcement on Wednesday after a Rome court
ordered the automaker to re-hire members of the FIOM labor union
after they successfully sued for unfair discrimination.
Fiat did not take on any FIOM members when it set up a new
corporate entity to run the Pomigliano factory in 2010 after a
dispute with the union over the policies the company wanted to
implement there.
Fiat, Italy's largest private employer and biggest
industrial company, has been going through a period of
tumultuous labor relations as it tries to restructure its
operations in Italy, its largest market.
The Pomigliano plant is where the company builds the newest
version of its Panda sub-compact, which was previously produced
in Poland.
