MILAN (Reuters) -Carmaker Stellantis will stop operations at its key Melfi plant in southern Italy from late June 28 to July 2 due to a “structural” shortage of semiconductors, the UILM union said on Thursday.


The new stoppage - which will follow a production freeze between Friday last week and Saturday this week - means the Melfi plant will have only been operating for seven days in June, UILM metalworkers union said in a statement.

Marco Lomio, the head of UILM for Basilicata Region, where Melfi is located, said he feared July could be even worse.
