Rüsselsheim. An important meeting between IG Metall and management took place yesterday. The topic was the planned capacity utilization and the investments in the German plants to fulfil the collective agreements.

“Part of these investment commitments based on competitive structures has already been fulfilled, including the allocation of the Grandland X to Eisenach. We also talked about further investments including those for Rüsselsheim. As announced, we will bring a second model based on a modern Groupe PSA multi-energy platform to Rüsselsheim," said Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller.

The constructive discussions between the social partners and management on the fulfilment of the collective agreements are to be continued.

“Management has discussed the investment projects planned so far with us. We have now agreed on a process for discussing these plans but also the open issues in detail,” said IG Metall’s head of the central district, Jörg Köhlinger. “These discussions will be about the security of employment and of the locations, but also the longer-term prospects under the conditions of changing mobility.”
