FCA union: ‘Severance pay paid to all dismissed workers’

The president of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Independent Trade Union, Saša Đorđević, has said that the company yesterday disbursed severance pay to Fiat workers made redundant in Kragujevac, and that the official dismissal letters have been sent to their home addresses.

Đorđević also said that the union estimates that more than 800 workers have left the company at this stage, while another 492 had left the company earlier.

Đorđević expressed his surprise that the company has so far not publicly revealed official data on the number of workers who will go to work in Slovakia, those who will remain working at the company until the start of production of electric vehicles, as well as the number of workers who have quit.

He believes that the exact figures should be published in order to ‘put an end to that issue’. “The company has those figures and so does the state,” he says.

According to the agreement with the Serbian government, a severance payment of 790 euros per year of work at Fiat’s factory in Kragujevac was agreed upon, and 500 euros for workers who had worked in the former Zastava factory (which was acquired by Fiat).

Đorđević also said that he expected the trade union to be invited to meet up with the Serbian authorities to discuss the implementation of the social programme.
