Carmaker Stellantis offers French workers 1,400 euro bonus payment to ease inflation pain
PARIS — Stellantis will hand its staff in France a 1,400 euro ($1,349.60) one-off payment to help them cope with rising consumer prices and will bring forward salary negotiations for 2023 to December, said the carmaker, after talks with unions.
Europe’s cost-of-living crisis is putting upwards pressure on wage inflation, as companies across the continent face demands from employees to cushion the impact of rising prices.
Rival carmaker Renault last week offered staff over 1,000 euros in exceptional payments, while retailer Carrefour offered a 2.5% pay hike alongside a 100 euro one-off payment in October and a discount on purchases, unions said.
