Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) workers have announced that they will strike against the signing of footballer Cristiano Ronaldo for Juventus Football Club, which is supported by Exor, the same investor as the vehicle maker.

The union urged Fiat owners to invest in its workforce to bolster the finances of "thousands of people instead of only one".

What do you think about the USB Lavoro Privato union's decision to go on strike?


Ronaldo met Juventus club president Andrea Agnelli on Tuesday afternoon in a hotel in Greece, where he is on holiday with his girlfriend and family, before agreeing a four-year deal worth an estimated £500,000 a week.

The union added that it was "unacceptable" that while Fiat Chrysler workers were making "huge economic sacrifices", millions of euros were being spent on the purchase of a player.

With Los Blancos all-time leading goalscorer Ronaldo off to Italian side Juventus, Spanish publication Marca conducted a pool of 200,000 Real supporters, with 15 percent choosing Hazard and 14 percent in favour of bringing former Barcelona man Neymar to the Bernabeu this summer.


The marketing leverage that Juventus will be able to create will be significant. Portugal made the last 16 of the tournament, in stark contrast to Italy, who failed to qualify for the first time since 1958.

The proposed strike will take place at the Melfi plant in southern Italy at 10pm local time on Sunday, lasting until 6pm the following Tuesday.

The Agnelli family, which has owned Turin-based Juventus for more than 90 years, controls Ferrari and Fiat Chrysler through its holding company, Exor, which owns 64 per cent of Juventus.
