Chrysler, Fiat Unions Join Global Network

MILAN (AP) – As the Fiat and Chrysler automakers go global, so do their unions.

Fiat and Chryslers unions worldwide this week have agreed to join in a global network aimed at a constant flow of information and defining a common strategy. But the unions said they may try to replicate a worldwide framework agreement for minimum union rights that exists at Volkswagen, Psa-Peugeout and Renault.

The FIOM union’s auto coordinator says that the network is a signal to Fiat that the unions are united.

Their first common act will be a letter to Fiat and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne asking for recognition.
