Pomigliano auto-workers' wives call first assembly

(ANSA)- Pomigliano d'Arco, October 30 - Plant workers' wives on Tuesday called for a meeting in the long-running labour dispute at car makers Fiat's plant at Pomigliano d'Arco near Naples. A group of unemployed workers' wives announced the initiative on Tuesday with an open letter - "from woman to woman" - inviting other women like themselves to join them in a meeting on November 24 in a municipal library. "Now, today, since no one hides the failure of (Fiat CEO Sergio) Marchionne's plan, and since Fiat is pulling out of Italy to outsource abroad, the future promises unemployment for all workers, including those of (Fiat) suppliers," read the letter. "As wives, partners, mothers and female plant workers, let's go on the pitch next to our men for a united fight: for work, beginning with Fiat's plants," wrote the women, adding that they'd like to see all the group's factories nationalized.
