Fiat Says Fiom Union’s 21 Appeals Rejected by Turin Tribunal

April 14 (Bloomberg) -- Fiat said a Turin tribunal rejected 21 appeals filed by Fiom Cgil, the carmaker’s biggest union, which had sought to appoint representatives in 15 units of Fiat SpA and Fiat Industrial SpA.

The Turin judge ruled that only unions that signed a one-year collective labor deal in December could appoint representatives. Fiom was the only Fiat union to reject the deal, which increased shifts and shortened breaks in exchange for a 20 billion-euro ($26 billion) investment plan. Instead, Fiom filed about 60 lawsuits against the company for anti-union practices.

On March 27, a judge in Bologna ruled against Fiat for anti-union behavior at its Magneti Marelli plants in the region in the first verdict concerning the contract, Fiom said. The union had been excluded from being represented at the plants by Fiat as it didn’t agree to sign the deal. Fiat vowed to appeal the decision.
