Opel unions agree to 2016 closure of Bochum - dpa
FRANKFURT Feb 28 (Reuters) - Opel's labour unions will agree to demands from parent General Motors to close the vehicle manufacturing plant in Bochum, Opel's senior labour leader Wolfgang Schaefer-Klug told German newswire dpa.
GM Vice Chairman Steve Girsky gave a deadline that unions have to sign off on a deal to restructure Opel's German operations by the end of February.
IG Metall had already signalled they would no longer stand in the way of a plant closure, resigned itself to negotiating the terms of such a decision.
