Fiat, unions reach final accord over Pomigliano car factory

Dan Liefgreen / Bloomberg News

Fiat SpA and unions reached a final accord for a car plant in Pomigliano, Italy, clearing the way for investments at the site that will produce Panda models, labor officials said.

The Fismic, Fim, Uilm, Uglm and Associazione Quadri unions signed agreements that will allow 5,600 employees to be hired in January at the factory near Naples, Fismic said in an e-mailed statement today.

"This shows that there are two types of labor unions, one that carries out strikes and another that negotiates agreements," Roberto Di Maulo, head of the Fismic union, said in the statement.

A Fiat spokeswoman said the company had no immediate comment.

Chief Executive Officer Sergio Marchionne earlier this year had proposed shifting production of its best-selling Panda model from Poland to the under-utilized Pomigliano plant and invest 700 million euros ($920 million) in the factory if unions agree to a plan that includes adding shifts and instituting a six-day work week.

Today's agreement follows an accord reached last week with most of the unions at Fiat's Mirafiori plant, the company's largest factory in Italy. The FIOM union didn't sign the Mirafiori agreement and plans to strike for eight hours on Jan. 28
