ArcelorMittal Italia announced that it has signed an agreement with the UILM, FIM, FIOM and CGL unions aimed at stabilizing the situation at the Taranto plant and enabling the company to continue operations. The agreement includes additional initiatives aimed at supporting safety performance. These include a weekly safety meeting with unions as well as an institutional committee to monitor the health and safety situation. Furthermore, it was agreed to have dedicated department discussions on maintenance and investment to ensure that each department has a clear plan to address issues that arise. Finally, as part of the agreement, ArcelorMittal Italia also commits to monitor the CIGO on a weekly basis and prioritize those in the CIGO for identified additional activity at the plant.

Commenting Matthieu Jehl, CEO ArcelorMittal Italia, said “Safety is the first priority for all ArcelorMittal plants and we were all devastated by last week’s tragic accident. Deepening our engagement on safety with key stakeholders including unions will, I hope, further support our efforts to improve the safety performance. I sincerely hope that with this agreement we can regain stability at the operation and ensure we can produce the steel that our customers need as we continue to implement the industrial and environmental plan to address the plant’s long-term sustainability issues.”
