The Board of Directors of Alitalia met today in Rome under the Chairmanship of Luca Cordero di Montezemolo and approved the airline’s 2017-2021 business plan, presented by CEO Cramer Ball and validated by the independent advisor Roland Berger with a positive judgement by the “asseveratore”.
The plan’s funding by the company’s shareholders is subject to Alitalia’s trade unions agreeing to a new collective works agreement and headcount-related measures.
Airline management will tomorrow present the plan to the Italian government and then meet with trade unions to explain the details of the business plan, headcount-related measures and resume talks on a new collective labour agreement.
Luigi Gubitosi was inducted with immediate effect as a new Director of the Board. Mr Gubitosi replaces Roberto Colaninno who left the Board last February. All Board members agreed unanimously that Mr Gubitosi will become Executive Chairman once the business plan’s funding is agreed by shareholders.
