    MELFI- It will be a working September at the most, the one that is about to begin in the industrial area of Melfi, thanks to a peak in demand for the three models made in Basilicata - especially in the hybrid version - and despite some fears caused by some cases of contagion from Covid -19 registered in these days. The management of FCA, during a meeting held yesterday with the plant executive announced "full saturation on the Jeep Renegade and 500X line with twenty shifts a week" and the structuring "ten shifts, including four Saturdays in overtime on the first »in the one in which the Compass and the Renegade hybrid are made. This means that at Sata - and therefore also in related companies - production will be significantly increased. «This communication - explain the regional and factory representatives of Fim-Cisl, Uilm-Uil, Fismic and Aqfc - arises following a peak in demand for the three models and a positive trend on hybrid versions for the month of September. After years, the Melfi plant, in addition to having returned to its full production capacity, also uses overtime. All this confirms once again the great work done in recent years, the result of sacrifice and foresight. But today more than ever - the unions continue - there is a need, starting from the request made a few days ago to the Basilicata Region,

    Today the industrial area of Melfi, with this peak in volumes, needs to be monitored together with its related industries which are also seeing the emergence of temporary workers in these hours. The FCA, at our request - they conclude - has also confirmed that a discussion will start on Monday on the organization of work that will allow us to better manage the management of these volumes ». According to Fiom-Cgil, on the other hand, the growth in requests for models produced in Melfi "is a positive element, but in this context we must go back to talking about the rhythms and working conditions in the factory, starting from what was lost in wage terms in these months. Moving from a phase of social safety nets to one of maximum production - underlines the union - is a positive fact, but if the climbs and descents alternate, the production schedule must be changed. It is also necessary - adds Fiom-Cgil - that the mobility between the lines of workers, which the company considers habitual but which in our opinion should also be addressed by reviewing the current system of shifts, guarantees safety in this moment of health emergency and allows the professional and salary growth of the people involved, recognizing their versatility and professionalism ".

    Another big change was the ability to order these vehicles online during the various lockdowns. I wonder how many of these orders came in directly from people’s living rooms.

    I hope the Renegade 4Xe will be sold in the USA. I'm glad the powertrain and production facility updates are now paying off for FCA.
