Fiat workers at centre of wrangle to be paid to stay home


Pomigliano d'Arco (Naples), February 4 - Fiat told
18 members of a leftwing union who are at the centre of a long
industrial dispute to stay at home on Monday, saying they still
would receive their salaries.
The carmaker did not take on any of its former workers
belonging to the FIOM union when it set up a special subsidiary
to run its Pomigliano d'Arco factory near Naples in 2010 after a
dispute with the union over the flexible labour practices it
wanted to implement there.
But Fiat has been ordered to put the 18, plus another
person who is currently on leave of absence for political
activities, on the payroll after a Rome court ruled their
exclusion amounted to unfair discrimination.
On Monday the workers turned up for work at the plant,
where Fiat builds the newest version of its Panda sub-compact.
But they then went back home, saying they feared they would
be dismissed if they refused to obey the company.
FIOM chief Maurizio Landini threatened Fiat with legal
"FIOM is ready to take all the legal and union actions
necessary to stop a situation that is no longer acceptable from
proceeding," said Landini. "We are assessing what action to take
and we are not excluding anything".
Last week Fiat announced that the special subsidiary set up
to run Pomigliano would be wound down and that control of the
factory would return to the mother company.
