Indesit workers protest at company owner's home


Ancona, August 1 - Over 200 workers from the
home-appliance maker Indesit, whose temporary lay-offs were
confirmed in June, protested outside the home of the company's
owners on Thursday holding signs reading "have a good vacation".
"We continue to believe that the Indesit plan damages
Italian business by pushing production out of the country and
decreasing jobs," UILM representative Vincenzo Gentilucci said.
The company said at the beginning of June that it was
set to slash 1,425 jobs, including 25 managers, 150 white
collar staff and 1,250 factory workers across three Italian
manufacturing plants.
Immediately following the announcement, unions
FIOM-CGIL, FIM-CISL and UILM called for strikes that have been
ongoing since the announcement.
The company said earlier in June that financial woes
called for lay-offs that are also part of 70-million euro
restructuring plan.
Indesit plans to keep only high-end appliance manufacturing
in Italy, and to concentrate low-cost appliance manufacturing in
Poland and Turkey.
