Serbia - Fiat workers have a new agreement - January 31, 2018

The management of Fiat Chrysler Automobili (FCA) and the independent trade union signed a 3-year-collective agreement during Christmas holidays. Fiat’s workers at the Kragujevac plant are satisfied with the fact that the agreement has been concluded, taking it as a sign that Fiat has no intention of leaving Kragujevac in autumn once its old agreement with the government expires. Workers who do work at night will get an increase of 6 dinars per hour or 50 dinars per working day.
