Italy -FIAT closures debated with the government -September 19, 2012

Unions from Spain, Poland, Austria, Germany, France and Italy gathered in front of the FIAT Iveco headquarters on 7 September to protest against the unilateral closure of five plants in France, Austria and Germany and the loss of 1000 jobs. The first and core demand of the unions was to get full information and start bilateral talks at the national and European level about the intended restructuring in order to be able to defend the interests of the employees as best as may be. Shortly after, the country's labour minister stated that the company still has responsibilities in Italy that include clarifying its industrial plans. As PM Mario Monti stepped in talks were opened with the company leadership, and later on with the trade unions.
