Italy -Fiat and most unions sign one-year agreement -December 13, 2011

Fiat SpA has signed a one-year collective agreement with most metalworkers' unions representing its 86,000-strong Italian workforce, but not with FIOM-CGIL. The agreement will go into effect in January 2012. The unions signing the deal agreed to increased shifts and shorter breaks in exchange for a € 20 million investment plan. The UILM union said that workers will get an increase in their base salary and receive 10% more pay for overtime work, and will also receive a €600 production bonus in 2012. FIOM-CGIL, the largest union at Fiat, has claimed the deal curtails worker rights. Its about 10,000 members will nonetheless fall under the agreement (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 4 January, October and November 2011).
