FCA’s deceased CEO Sergio Marchionne (Sergio Marchionne) publicly stated that he hopes to merge FCA with GM, and has since repeatedly with GM CEO Mary Barra(Mary Barra) Contact.GM is not cold about the merger.In November 2019, GM sued the FCA for extortion in the Federal Court, arguing that Marchionne had bribed the National Association of Automobile Workers (UAW) to allow FCA to obtain favorable contract terms that GM could not obtain, causing labor costs and operations to GMpressure.”GM will be forced to consider a merger with FCA,” GM accused.Specifically, negotiations between the OEM and UAW are held every four years.GM pointed out that in two negotiations between FCA in 2011 and 2015, UAW was provided with bribes to provide more and cheaper temporary workers and second-line workers than GM.According to data from the American Automobile Research Center, GM has to pay an average hourly salary of $63, while FCA only has $55.The 2015 negotiations alone caused GM to pay an additional $1 billion in wages.The outside world believes that GM’s lawsuit has a profound meaning at this point of time: In October 2019, FCA just announced its intention to merge with PSA and faced huge pressure from investors and regulation.At the same time, FCA is launching new negotiations with UAW, which is the only one of the three largest auto companies in the United States that has not yet been completed.Regarding GM’s trouble, FCA chairman John Elkann not only denied the allegations, but also publicly stated that GM is trying to use lawsuits to prevent the merger of FCA and PSA.For this lawsuit, U.S. District Judge Paul Borman believes that the matter is significant and is not a good time.”At the most pressing time in the country, these lawsuits not only consumed the energy of the executives of both sides, but also prevented them from contributing their vision and leadership.” He reminded the two companies that after the 2008 financial crisis, the United States had rescued GM andChrysler.Please pay attention to the future car daily (ID: auto-time)
