Antwerp Opel plant gets more time to seek rescue.

(ADPnews) - Mar 22, 2010 - The Antwerp-based plant of German carmaker Opel will not have to close at the end of June as previously announced, a spokesperson of trade union AVBB said on Monday.

General Motors gave traded unions more time to seek a new investor for the assembly unit of its subsidiary. The deadline for finding a solution was put off to end-2010, AVBB said.

General Motors has proposed earlier to operate the plant in a very reduced form, with only 400 of the 2,600 workers keeping their job. Trade unions did not agree and put forward the idea to keep open the facility until 2012 and look for an investor in the meantime.
