Why Fiat Chrysler workers went on strike because of Cristiano Ronaldo
The reason why the Fiat workers went on strike because of Ronaldo
If you don’t follow football world championship and the world passes by unnoticed, you may not know that football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo recently moved from Spanish club “real Madrid” “Juventus”. You can also be aware that after the transition to the factory Fiat Chrysler real scandal and working people are willing to go out on strike… and here’s why.
Watch Juventus – Italian club controlled by the same family that runs “Fiat Chrysler”. Ronaldo as the best scorer in club history real Madrid was not a cheap purchase, beating Juventus in the amount of about $ 130 million. When the same people owned two profitable businesses, they can borrow money from one and redirect them to another, where there is not enough money. It just bothered some employees of Fiat, who suspected embezzlement of funds that could go to increase their salaries, or that the Agnelli family could invest in the development of Fiat Chrysler. Italian trade Union of avtorobotov immediately responded to perceived threats.
From the point of view of Juventus, to spend $ 130 million on the second best player in the world was smart football and business decision. With this purchase the shares of Juventus soared, and instantly the football club has risen in the ranking standings.
According to the BBC:
“The firm has to guarantee the future of thousands of people, rather than enrich only one.”
“The situation is completely unacceptable when the staff of FCA will continue to suffer huge economic losses, and the company spends hundreds of millions of euros to purchase the player,” – said the press in the Union. What are the problems in question is not clear, because Fiat-Chrysler has for many years not experiencing economic problems.
At the moment the rebellious workers are at the company’s factory in Melfi, which produces Fiat 500X and Jeep Renegade. This plant (yet) is the only one of the seven Italian companies Fiat, where it was initiated by the strike. Even planned suspension of production of cars, as the event will take part the majority of workers.
The strike will start at 10pm local time on Sunday and will end on Tuesday at 6am. It is doubtful whether such limited measures can be called an attempt major changes.
However, I would say that this is exactly why there are trade unions: to agitate, to make the user feel uncomfortable, to refocus the problem on the workers and to remind people that the strength of organized labor is useless if you don’t use it.
