MILAN -- As the Fiat and Chrysler automakers go global, so do their unions.
Fiat and Chryslers unions worldwide this week have agreed to join in a global network aimed at a constant flow of information and defining a common strategy. But the unions said they may try to replicate a worldwide framework agreement for minimum union rights that exists at Volkswagen, Psa-Peugeout and Renault.
The FIOM union's auto coordinator says that the network is a signal to Fiat that the unions are united.
Their first common act will be a letter to Fiat and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne asking for recognition.
