IndustriALL Global Union in solidarity with Whirlpool workers in Naples
Dear Sister Francesca and Brothers Marco and Rocco,
I am writing this letter to you on behalf of IndustriALL Global Union’s more than fifty million workers in mining, energy and manufacturing sectors throughout the world, including Italy, to express our full support and solidarity with the Whirlpool workers, their families and the community, who are fighting against the plant closure in Naples.
IndustriALL Global Union is outraged to learn of the company’s unilateral decision to close the plant, without proper consultation with concerned unions. We fully understand how crucial manufacturing is for the local economy. It is imperative to avoid mass job losses, which would have a devastating impact on the community.
Therefore, IndustriALL Global Union expects the company and the government to work with unions to find a fair and sustainable solution to protect jobs for the Whirlpool workers, who are affected as a result of the closure of the plant.
IndustriALL Global Union expresses its full solidarity with the Whirlpool workers, their families and the community in Naples.
