(ANSA) - Turin, September 7 - A group of trade unionists from all over Europe gathered in front of the Turin headquarters of auto giant Fiat in the northern Italian city on Friday morning to protest planned restructuring of Fiat's bus and truck maker Iveco. The possible closure of five sites could result in the reduction of at least 1,100 jobs in Fiat-owned plants around Europe, say union representatives. Approximately 400 workers belonging to IndustriAll European Trade Union from Poland, Germany, Spain, Czech Republic, Austria and Italy blocked access to the headquarter's entrance for several hours and set fire to a mock coffin. "This is the first protest of many to come aimed at Fiat offices in Europe," said union spokesman Luc Triangle.
