Firm production of two weeks for the Ferrari: the Coronavirus causes a stop in the factories in Maranello and Modena, starting from 16 march until Friday 27. At the base of this decision there are issues in the supply chain encountered in recent times, which impede the smooth continuation of work. The latch will not affect the employees who in recent weeks have resorted to smart working and the staff that must maintain business continuity, the active rotation.
The employees of Ferrari that won’t work after the stop decided by the house of Maranello will be paid on a regular basis: the stop, therefore, will have no influence on their salary, or even on the vacation you’ve earned. Ferrari do know that the downtime was not due to the pressure of the employees, who, on the contrary, showed a strong attachment to the the company: here, the decision to recognize the entire salary to the workers.
