It has long been known that the electric transition would have threatened thousands of jobs across Italy. And what is happening to Bosch in Bari is proof of this: the Apulian branch of the leading company in the global components sector has announced that within the next five years it will have to cut more than 700 jobs. But not only that: it even seems that, during yesterday’s table in the Puglia Region, it came out that most likely in the next few years the entire plant will be at risk that the multinational owns in Bari.
The indiscretion was launched by Il Fatto Quotidiano on newsstands this morning, which explains that the reason that would lead Bosch to make a similar decision would be linked to the fact that the plans for the electrical transition are traveling slowly: the factory now depends for 80% on diesel pumps, which in the last four years have inevitably seen the parts produced drop significantly, for this reason a conversion is increasingly essential to guarantee the current employment levels, with 1,700 workers. As for the non-diesel productionson the other hand, today they seem capable of securing a maximum of 450 jobs. In 2018, the line of motors for electric bicycles was also activated, on which 350 are currently used and about a hundred are expected to be added.
The unions now expect the Draghi government to send some signals, not only on Bosch but on the entire automotive sector that appears today in great difficulty. And Fiom complains: “Bosch Bari limited itself to announcing the collaboration with an external company in charge of probing the market to identify projects to be developed in the coming years. The government must convene the discussion table, otherwise we will build an initiative of solidarity and struggle with all the workers of the group and of the sector to prevent the workers of Bosch Bari and of the automotive sector from paying the social price of the government’s inability to deploy extraordinary resources“.
