When will the government confront Stellantis?

The confrontation between the government and Stellantis has shifted to phase two, which involves analyzing the production situation and workforce of 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. Meanwhile, the government continues its search for a second producer interested in investing in Italy to reach the target of producing 1 million cars annually.

Adolfo Urso, Minister of Business, has stated that several car manufacturers have expressed interest in investing in Italy. He emphasizes that now it is Stellantis’ turn to show commitment to the future of the sector. The recent roundtable at Mimit focused on working group activities and a second phase is now beginning to analyze each plant individually.

The 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. The goal is to reach at least one million cars produced, including commercial vehicles, to ensure stability in the industrial system.

Meetings will continue to discuss specific plants, with a focus shifting from Melfi on Wednesday to Mirafiori on Thursday. The discussions aim to find solutions that ensure future growth and stability of the automotive industry in Italy.
