L’art. 19 Stat. nell’affaire Fiat tra dissensi giurisprudenziali e sospetti di incostituzionalità

WP C.S.D.L.E. “Massimo D’Antona”.IT – 147/2012



The paper analyses the recent case law on Article 19 of the Law no 300 of 20 May 1970 (the ‘Workers’ Statute’), with particular reference to the application of the cited provision to the Fiat case (i.e. in the litigation between Fiat and some unions about the right to constitute representation bodies in the workplace).
After an introduction on the previous constitutional case law on Article 19, the paper deals with the different arguments used by the courts in providing different interpretations on Article 19, pointing out the paradoxical effect according to which the application of such provision to the Fiat case gives rise to doubts as to its constitutionality.
