Fiat, Chrysler CEO Investigated for Violation of Workers' Rights
Sergio Marchionne and another Fiat group manager were reportedly notified of a preliminary investigation for "an unprecedented judiciary offensive directed by FIOM against Fiat, for more than two years", the Italian automaker said.
The dispute concerns 19 laid-off employees, also members of the FIOM trade union, who filed a complaint alleging discrimination. Last month, Marchionne said the dispute at the factory in Naples had been resolved, but it looks like the case is be far from being settled.
"This initiative is yet another expression of unusual judicial offensive launched by FIOM against the company for more than two years, with the promotion of 62 appeals, 45 of which were decided in favor of the company, seven in favor of FIOM, seven with reference to the Constitutional Court and three have not yet been defined," Fiat representatives added.
