Stellantis’ Turin Workers Say Farewell: Addressing the Root Causes of Job Losses

Stellantis and Turin’s metalworking unions have agreed to a voluntary, incentivized departure of 1,520 workers from 21 group companies in the area. These departures come from a total employee pool of around 12 thousand. The announcement was made by Uilm.

Of the 1,520 workers, 733 will be leaving from central structures, including both employees and managers, while 300 departures will come from the Mirafiori body shops. According to Luigi Paone, general secretary of Uilm Turin, the requested numbers are high and indicate a worsening situation. It is imperative to expedite discussions with Stellantis and institutions to develop a concrete revitalization plan for Mirafiori.

The high number of workers set to depart highlights the severity of the situation facing Stellantis in Turin. This development underscores the need for immediate action to address the challenges being faced by the company and its employees in the region. Discussions and planning for a revival of operations at Mirafiori are crucial to ensuring the long-term sustainability and success of Stellantis in the area.

In response to this news, many experts are calling for urgent action by government officials and industry leaders to address the root causes of these job losses. They argue that without addressing these underlying issues, it will be difficult for Stellantis to turn things around in Turin.

One expert who has studied this issue closely is Professor Giovanni Mazzocchi of Turin University’s School of Management. He believes that there are several factors contributing to this problem. Firstly, he points out that automotive manufacturers have been struggling with declining sales in recent years as consumers shift their focus towards electric vehicles.

Secondly, he notes that many automakers have been outsourcing production overseas rather than investing in new facilities here at home.

Finally, Professor Mazzocchi argues that there needs to be more investment in research and development within Italy’s automotive sector if it wants to remain competitive on a global scale.

Despite these challenges, some experts believe that there is still hope for Stellantis in Turin if they can take action quickly enough.

“Stellantis has always had strong roots here,” says Mario Fois, president of Uilm Turin. “If we can work together with management and government officials to create jobs and invest in new technologies, then I believe we can turn things around.”
