When will the government confront Stellantis?

The ongoing confrontation between Stellantis and the Italian government has entered its second phase, with a focus on analyzing the production situation and workforce at individual factories in the country. While Stellantis has confirmed that five models will be produced in Melfi, unions are calling for a national negotiation table at Palazzo Chigi to provide clarity on the future of the automotive sector.

The Minister of Business, Adolfo Urso, has emphasized that several car manufacturers have expressed interest in investing in Italy, and now it is Stellantis’ turn to show commitment to the future of the sector. A recent roundtable at Mimit focused on activities from various working groups, and a second phase is now beginning to analyze each plant individually.

Unions have varying positions, with some advocating for hybrid models in addition to electric vehicles and emphasizing the importance of protecting workers who may face job loss as a result of these changes. The goal is to ensure stability in the industrial system by producing at least one million cars annually, including commercial vehicles.

Meetings will continue to focus on specific plants, shifting attention to Mirafiori on Wednesday and Atessa on Thursday. These discussions aim to find solutions that will secure the future growth and stability of Italy’s automotive industry.
