FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne Cancels Paris Auto Show Appearance

According to a Fiat-Chrysler Automobile (FCA) spokesperson, Sergio Marchionne won’t attend this year’s Paris Auto Show for reasons currently unknown.

The FCA CEO, who’s also in charge of luxury supercar manufacturer Ferrari, was scheduled to meet with journalists in Paris on Thursday, though that seems to no longer be the case.

“The media availability with Sergio Marchionne on Sept. 29 at the Paris Motor Show has been cancelled,” said the FCA in an official statement, followed by a spokesperson adding that the CEO will not be attending the show at all.

This is also not the first time Marchionne has cancelled his appearance at an auto show, having previously done so a year ago in Frankfurt after FCA was “picked as the target company in labor talks in the US,” as reported by Autonews.

Now, Unifor, the union representing Canadian auto workers, has targeted FCA as its next negotiating brand after workers agreed to a new contract with General Motors.

There’s also a tentative strike deadline for these talks, set for Oct.10th, stated Unifor on Sunday.
