First Fiat/Chrysler & Fiat Industrial Global Network Meeting: United we are stronger
On 21 and 22 June 2011, a meeting hosted by the International Metalworkers’ Federation (IMF) took place in Turin, Italy, at the ITC-ILO campus.
Union representatives from Fiat Spa, Fiat Industrial and Chrysler, and from countries such as Italy, Poland, the Czech Republic, Serbia, France, Spain, Germany and the USA took part in the first meeting, together with representatives of Fiat and Chrysler.
To emphasise the importance of this meeting, the delegation from the United States was headed by Bob King, President of the UAW (the International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America).
The main priority at the meeting was the creation and maintenance of a Fiat/Chrysler global network.
One of the main conclusions was that a group of contact persons from each country, with a coordinator, would run the network, gather and distribute important information and organize mutual support and common action, if necessary, under the leadership of the IMF.
