Fornero says nothing more to add on Fiat Pomigliano firings

Rome, November 8 - Italian Labour Minister Elsa
Fornero on Thursday said she had nothing further to add her
request for Fiat to rethink plans to fire 19 workers at its
biggest southern Italian plant.
"That’s all I want to say" said Fornero, answering
journalists' queries on the "invitation" she made last week to
Fiat in which she asked the company to "supersede the planned
firing process" for the employees in Pomigliano.
Fiat upped the stakes in a long-running industrial dispute
last week when it said it had to fire employees at its
Pomigliano d'Arco plant near Naples to comply with a court order
to re-hire members of the left-wing trade union FIOM.
Last month a Rome court ordered the carmaker to hire the
FIOM members after they successfully sued for unfair
discrimination.
Italian Industry Minister Corrado Passera had also voiced
criticism over the announced layoffs following the decision
announced last week by Fiat.
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 labour 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.
