Italy -Fiat’s landmark court ruling -August 26, 2013

FIOM, the metalworkers’ trade-union of the confederation CGIL, won a July ruling before the Constitutional Court after having petitioned against being excluded from the company union representation bodies (RSAs) at Fiat's plants for not having signed the company's labour agreements. The recent landmark ruling ordered the carmaker to expand its worker representation base to include the unions that refused to sign the company's labour agreement. The Constitutional Court said in a statement that it considered illegitimate the part of the article that said unions who did not sign the collective agreements applied at a company's plant could be excluded from RSAs, even if they had taken part in the negotiations. First talks after the ruling between the management and FIOM give the impression that Fiat doesn't intend to apply the Constitutional Court sentence.
