The general feeling is that the decision to conclude long-term labour deals with the motor industry has served companies and workers alike. Car executives and union leaders agree that the shift towards wage moderation and flexible working practices that was enshrined in a series of collective deals in the early years of the crisis was instrumental in luring more production. Ford, for example, struck a five-year deal with its unions in 2009.
