Opel employees reject  redevelopment plan

Employees at General Motor Co.'s Opel plant in Bochum have rejected a redevelopment plan for the troubled German plant, which means production there could end by late 2014.
German news agency dpa said Thursday that 76.1 percent of the Bochum plant rejected a redevelopment plan, which implied that after the year 2016 there would have been only 1,200 jobs left. About 3,200 persons now work at the unit in Bochum.
Steve Girsky, the chairman of Opel's board of directors and GM's vice chairman had said earlier, that production at the Bochum plant would end by January 1, 2015, if there would not be an agreement with the employees, dpa reported.
