Faced with shortages, Peugeot is building up a stock of 4,000 cars
Stellantis suspends production. The group resulting from the merger of PSA and FCA (Fiat Chrysler) will suspend from June 28 to July 2 its production in Melfi, in the south of Italy, because of a “structural” shortage of semiconductors, has we learned Thursday, June 23 from the Italian Union of Metallurgy. This site manufactures the Fiat 500X SUV as well as the Jeep Compass and Renegade. On Wednesday, the group announced a suspension of production at the Rennes-La Janais and Sochaux factories. And this, until July 1st.
2,000 employees in Brittany, where the Peugeot 5008 and Citroën C5 Aircross are assembled, as well as 3,000 in the Doubs (Peugeot 3008 and 5008) are affected. “A disaster”, warns Éric Peultier, of Force Ouvrière. “It is the concern that remains, because there are no prospects”, insists Benoît Vernier, of the CFDT. Training is organized for certain employees and maintenance work is anticipated. For the rest, the employees go into partial activity and only receive 84% of their salaries.
