Miglioramento produttività, con attenzione a:

from Treccani,
Rivolto invece ai sindacati, [Sergio Marchionne] sottolinea le parole "flessibilità nell’utilizzo degli impianti e produttività". Aggiungendo che "le eventuali situazioni di dissaturazione degli stabilimenti verranno gestite senza il ricorso a provvedimenti di forte impatto sociale, ma attraverso la cassa integrazione".
What I believe he means is 'layoffs' or more euphemistically, 'downsizing.
