When will the government confront Stellantis?

As the confrontation between Stellantis and the Italian government enters its second phase, the focus is shifting to analyzing the production situation and workforce at individual factories in Italy. Stellantis has confirmed that five models will be produced in Melfi, but social partners are urging the government to unify the discussion table and move it to Palazzo Chigi for clarity on the future of the automotive sector.

In addition, the Italian government is continuing its search for a second producer interested in investing in Italy to reach its target of producing one million cars annually. The Minister of Business, Adolfo Urso, has stated that several car manufacturers have expressed interest in investing in Italy and emphasizes that now it’s Stellantis’ turn to show commitment to the future of the sector.

The recent roundtable at Mimit focused on various working groups and a second phase is now beginning to analyze each plant individually. Unions have different positions, with some calling for a national negotiation table at Palazzo Chigi. They emphasize the importance of hybrid models in addition to electric vehicles and advocate for protecting related workers who are most at risk of job loss.

Meetings will continue to discuss specific plants, with a shift focusing on the Mirafiori site on Wednesday and Atessa plant on Thursday. The discussions aim to find solutions that ensure future growth and stability of the automotive industry in Italy.
