Germany -Metal union denies concessions at Opel January -12, 2012

The head of the IG Metall district Frankfurt, Armin Schild, said in emailed comments to a press agency he was not in talks with General Motors (GM) over offering wage concessions from German workers at Opel in order to save jobs, as the loss-making European carmaker struggles to return to profitability. Earlier, the same news agency cited sources suggesting that under new union leadership at Opel IG Metall was prepared to work together hand in hand with the Detroit headquarters to cut costs.
