When will the government confront Stellantis?


Apr 3, 2024

The government’s confrontation with Stellantis has moved into phase two, focusing on analyzing the production situation and workforce at the company’s individual factories in Italy. Stellantis has confirmed that 5 models will be produced in Melfi, but social partners are urging the government to move the discussion table to Palazzo Chigi to provide clarity on the future of the sector. The government is also continuing to search for a second producer interested in investing in Italy to achieve the goal of producing 1 million cars in the country annually. Minister of Business Adolfo Urso has stated that 6-8 car manufacturers have already shown interest in investing in Italy.

During a meeting at Mimit, the president of the Basilicata Region, representatives from the company, the National Association of the Italian Automotive Supply Chain, and trade unions came together to discuss the next steps. The first phase of discussions focused on activities in five working groups, and now a second phase is opening to analyze each factory individually.

The unions have diverse positions, with some urging for a national negotiation table at Palazzo Chigi in order to reach a comprehensive agreement. They are pleased with the confirmation of production of five models in Melfi, but are also pushing for hybrid models to be included to address market challenges. Protecting related workers, like those in components, services, and logistics, is also a key concern for the unions.

Meetings will continue with a focus on the Mirafiori site and the Atessa plant in the coming days. The discussions aim to define commitments from Stellantis to ensure growth and stability in the Italian automotive industry.
