The factory of Melfi of the FCA would be ready to reopen on the 6th of April: as reported by the Journal of the south, the plant can start only the production lines of the Jeep Compass 2020, model and ready to launch. The FCA has communicated its intentions in a video conference with representatives of the Fim-Cisl, Fiom-Cgil, Uilm-Uil, Fismic, Ugl Metalmeccanici and Aqcf, excluding the option to resume on march 30.
“Up until today, the only certainty, having regard to the decree of the president of the Council, is that the block is up to 3 April. The Fca riconvocherà a meeting, conference call to discuss the evolution of the situation,” say the unions. After that date, the FCA expects a firm production further regarding the Jeep Renegade and the Fiat 500X; length of the stop depends on the evolution of the emergency Coronavirus. In each case, the firm will be covered through the social safety nets until the 13th of may.
From the FCA comes the confirmation of the “re-opening on the 6th of April of the plants Sevel and Melfi (only the line of the Compass) together with the activities of the 500 Bev”. “The reopening of all our production sites of vehicles in Emea, it is added, will be confirmed on the basis of the evolution of the general terms and conditions”. The FCA is therefore “ready to restart production at any time according to the guidelines of the local government.”
