France -Pressure on negotiations at Renault -January 24, 2013

France’s second-biggest carmaker may shutter two factories in the country unless it reaches an agreement with unions on increasing productivity, holding back pay and cutting the workforce, a trade union leader said. The carmaker said earlier that it’s willing to increase production in France by 15% once a labour deal is reached. Boulogne-Billancourt-based Renault began talks with unions in November as part of efforts to sustain profit while Europe’s car market falls to almost a two-decade low.
