Eaton announces the closure of Monfalcone plant (Italy)


eatonThe management of the American corporation announced on January 15 the intention to discontinue the activities of the plant operating in the automotive segment and located in the province of Gorizia (north-eastern Italy), which currently employs 157 FTEs and other 50 people involved in the related industries.

The announcement, drastic and sudden, has aroused controversy and concern, given the dramatic impact on employment and the territory of such a decision.

However, the company declares that there is no bargaining margin, also due to the contraction in the demand for  – the manufacturing plant’s core products.

In the hope that a more humane and reasonable deal can be found – capable to meet the needs of a multinational business without damaging the lives of entire families – we express our solidarity to the employees of Monfalcone.
