Senator among three rehired Fiat workers called to plant
Trio won case after being sacked for disrupting production23 September, 13:53
The trio were sacked in 2010 after allegedly holding up a trolley during a nighttime strike to stop material reaching other workers not taking part in the protest, thus disrupting production. But the left-wing FIOM union successfully fought in the courts for the dismissals to be overturned.
Senator Giovanni Barozzino, who was voted to the Senate in February's general election as a representative of the left-wing SEL party, and two former colleagues have been told to go to the factory at 8:00 Italian time Tuesday.
The men are probably set to undergo a medical and then be informed when their first shift is.
Fiat and the FIOM have engaged in a series of bitter battles over the carmaker's drive to introduce new contracts and flexible working practices at its factors in Italy to make them profitable.
The union says these measures infringe on workers' rights.
