Article 14 of the so-called “Salva Imprese” decree was repealed by the Italian Senate’s Industry & Labor Commission on October 21, removing immunity from the steelmaker. This change will add further uncertainty to the future of ArcelorMittal Italia, the unions said.
The steelmaker had expressed concerns that the removal of the immunity would create a threat to the continued production of flat steel
at the plant in Taranto, southern Italy.
“The repealed provision did not guarantee any penal immunity but was limited to the realization of the environmental plan,” the unions said.
