Fiat will end Italy 'commitment' without new union rules


Turin, September 2 - Fiat on Monday threatened to
end its "commitment" to Italy unless the government draws up new
rules for labour relations in Italy.
A new law on worker representation and upholding contracts
"cannot be avoided," the Turin car maker said after recent
tussles with hard-line unions.
Government intervention is a "'sine qua non' (essential
condition) for Fiat's continued industrial commitment in Italy,"
it said.
The threat was issued as Fiat said it would accept a high-
court ruling to allow the hard-line metalworkers union Fiom to
represent workers.
In July, the Constitutional Court ordered Fiat to revive
relations with Fiom, the metalworkers' arm of Italy's biggest
and most left-wing trade union CGIL.
Fiom appealed to the supreme court after Fiat said it would
no longer talk to it after it refused to sign labour agreements
it said were unacceptable.
Fiom has engaged in a series of bitter fights with Fiat in
recent years over the carmaker's efforts to introduce new, more
flexible working contracts and practices which the union fears
will undermine workers' rights.
Fiat chief Sergio Marchionne has long accused unions of
dragging down loss-making plants in Italy which are already
being subsidised by the rest of the global group.
