Fiat Chrysler has announced more temporary layoffs at its Grugliasco plant in Turin, Italy, Reuters reports. The plant is tasked with producing the Maserati Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans, both of which have experienced a lag in sales over the past year.
The temporary layoffs are expected to last from March 17th through to April 4th and will affect all 1,900 workers at the plant. The Turin facility already had three weeks of temporary layoffs between January and February.
“Maserati now makes use of temporary layoffs each month … there is a risk that production this year will be lower than in 2015 when it was already down 30 percent on the previous year,” a statement released by Fiom, the union that represents workers at the plant, said.
FCA declined to comment on the temporary layoffs when approached for comment by Reuters.
