With GM wanting to have Reuters reports.

The European employee forum of General Motors says speculation on the future of GM’s European sites has damaged the image of Opel and Vauxhall:

“It is especially the case that employees in all European sites suffer insecurity from this speculation. Potential customers are furthermore made insecure in the already difficult economic environment.”

Workers’ representatives have asked the boards of GM and Opel for discussions, but talks were rejected, the statement says.

    Legal consultants will be dealing on behalf of management. My guess restructuring involving layoffs after strikes or lockouts.
