Sergio Marchionne, chief executive officer of parent Fiat SpA made a surprise return to Italy from the U.S. to solve a labour dispute at the Grugliasco car factory near Turin. He met with the Grugliasco workers for more than an hour before announcing production changes at the Maserati plant. He bowed to the unions request and reversed a decision taken a week earlier, giving the green light for the transfer of 500 laid-off workers from Fiat’s main plant at Mirafiori to Grugliasco. Wage talks are still stalled after eight months of negotiations. Trade unions are asking for an annual increase of 300 euro, while Fiat has countered with an offer of 250 euro.
