Spain -Carmakers expand after wage deal -February 04, 2013

Nissan Motor Co. announced the expansion of production and the hiring of an additional 1,000 workers following an agreement by unions. Nissan’s management and the trade unions signed a competitiveness plan, which includes a 20% cut in wages for new employees, but guarantees the rights of the current workforce in the event of future layoffs. The decision followed six months of negotiations between union representatives and management. Talks broke off on 17 January before being renewed again. In addition to new hiring by Nissan, the expansion could create an estimated 3,000 jobs at supplier companies and other firms doing business with the plant.
