Manley stated in a note to staff Monday that, commencing April 1, he will receive half his normal pay for the following a few months. The other 19 customers of FCA’s Team Government Council will consider a 30 per cent lower.
FCA Team Chairman John Elkann and other customers of the board of directors will receive no compensation for the rest of the calendar year, an FCA spokesman stated.
Manley stated the organization will talk to most salaried staff globally who are “not impacted by local downtime designs” to consider a 20 per cent income deferment.

It wasn’t straight away obvious when the deferred earnings would be paid out out.
The deferrals are aimed at averting layoffs of lasting staff, Manley stated in the letter.
“Protecting the financial overall health of the organization is everyone’s responsibility and obviously starts off with myself and the management of FCA,” Manley stated.
