FCA aiming for full employment at Italy plants

Laid-off workers will get their jobs back by 2018 say unions

(ANSA) - Turin, March 16 - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) CEO Sergio Marchionne told union representatives Wednesday the company's economic targets are being revised upwards and full employment at its Italian plants by 2018 "remains an objective".
    This means all the workers who were laid off will get their jobs back, union reps said after meeting with Marchionne.
    "The overall picture is positive," FIM, UILM, FISMIC and UGL unions said. "Recourse to unemployment benefits at Italian plants fell from 40% to 12% between 2013 and 2015. There have been 3,000 hires at the Melfi plant, 200 at the Termoli and Verrone plants, and another 200 at the Mirafiori Experimental Constructions plant".
    The unions said Marchionne told them relaunching Alfa Romeo on the American and European markets is essential to reaching the full employment target.
