Italy industry ministry calls on Alcoa to respect vow for slow plant closure

ROME -- Italy called on U.S. aluminum maker Alcoa to respect its commitment to slow down the planned closure of its Italian plant Wednesday, after trade unions accused the company of going back on its word.

“In the face of worrying news from the plant, the government calls firmly on Alcoa to accurately respect commitments formally undertaken by the group's international managers,” the industry ministry said in a statement.

The U.S. company must make sure the closure “is carried out according to the procedures and gradual time frame established” at a meeting with the government in Rome on Monday aimed at mediating a heated dispute over the plant's future.
