Today IG Metall member employees of Adam Opel AG in Bochum voted against the labor agreement that would have offered their location long-term prospects. “We very much regret that the employees in Bochum did not accept an attractive offer,” says Manfred Gellrich, Director of the Opel plant in Bochum. “A huge opportunity has now been missed.”

As already announced by the Opel management no further negotiations on the proposed labor agreement will take place. The production of the Zafira Tourer and the exclusion of compulsory separations will run out by the end of 2014.

Acceptance of Opel’s offer would have meant the conversion of the Bochum location to a components plant and the expansion of the warehouse center. This would have secured at least 1,200 tariff-bound Opel jobs in Bochum in the long-term.

Not affected by today’s decision is the development agency “Bochum Perspektive 2022”, in which Opel is making both financial and personnel investments. The goal of this initiative is to settle new companies and technologies in Bochum and the region.
