Stellantis-Government Tensions Escalate as Factories Under Scrutiny

By Eleanor Harrison Apr3,2024
When will the government confront Stellantis?

The government’s confrontation with Stellantis has entered a new phase, with the focus shifting to analyzing the production situation and workforce at the company’s individual factories in Italy. Stellantis has confirmed that five models will be produced in Melfi, but social partners are urging the government to move the discussion table to Palazzo Chigi for clarity on the future of the sector. Meanwhile, the government continues its search for a second producer interested in investing in Italy to achieve its goal of producing one million cars annually.

During a meeting at Mimit, representatives from Stellantis, the National Association of Italian Automotive Supply Chain, and trade unions discussed next steps. The first phase of discussions focused on activities in five working groups, and now a second phase is opening up to analyze each factory individually.

The unions have diverse positions regarding the talks. Some are calling for a national negotiation table at Palazzo Chigi to reach a comprehensive agreement. They are pleased with Stellantis’ confirmation of production of five models in Melfi but are pushing for hybrid models to be included as well. Protecting workers who work in components, services, and logistics is also a key concern for them.

Meetings will continue with an emphasis on Mirafiori and Atessa plants in coming days as they aim to define commitments from Stellantis that ensure growth and stability in the Italian automotive industry.
