Another department at the main Rüsselsheim plant is being closed at the German car manufacturer Opel. Contrary to earlier announcements, the tool shop with around 260 employees is to expire at the end of the year, as the management announced on Wednesday. The works council spoke in a leaflet to the workforce of a breach of contract because the company had promised four months ago to get around 160 jobs in this area.

Opel is the only German brand in the European car company Stellantis, which was created at the beginning of the year from the Peugeot parent company PSA and Fiat-Chrysler. Thousands of jobs have been cut since PSA’s takeover in August 2017, with layoffs not being possible until summer 2025.

Talks with the works council

In the current case, too, Opel wants to persuade employees to leave the company within the framework of the agreements with the union. An Opel spokesman said the company had taken all reasonable measures to keep capacity utilization and staff requirements in the tool shop in an appropriate balance. Further talks would now be held with the works council. Protests by workers against the Stellantis course have been announced for this Friday at all Opel locations.
