INTERVIEW-Chrysler good for Fiat long-term - union
Wed Apr 29, 2009 1:02pm BST

ROME, April 29

Fiat's alliance with Chrysler appears to be a "useful" business move that will not hurt Italian workers, but future consolidation in Europe might, an Italian labour leader said on Wednesday.

Giorgio Airaudo, regional secretary general of the FIOM-CGIL union in Fiat's home town of Turin, said Italian workers would demand job guarantees going forward to protect them in case of a future acquisition in Europe.

"For us, the accord with Chrysler doesn't do any harm. It creates prospects because if Fiat becomes bigger, it's more solid," Airaudo told Reuters.

"If it's more solid, there needs to be a guarantee that it stays in Italy. Because we don't want a Fiat that is strong in the world but disappears from Italy."
