PSA unions approve FCA merger but remain ‘vigilant’ on plant implications

 The majority of unions representing workers at PSA Group are in favor of a planned $50 billion merger with Fiat Chrysler, PSA executives and union representatives said.

However, the unions said that once the merger deal was signed, they would be seeking detailed information about the plans for the combined company.

At a PSA works council meeting, all trade union representatives on the council voted to give a favorable opinion on the merger.

“We will remain vigilant about the social impact and await a clearer and more detailed picture of the plan’s implications for plants, volume, and how much work will be given to the foundries,” said Franck Don, representative of the CFTC union.
