Automotive: Opel threatens to “relocate trades” from Germany to Morocco


The Stellantis group, the parent company of car manufacturer Opel, is reportedly considering “moving trades from Rüsselsheim to Morocco. According to German media Hessenschau and Ntv, employees of the automaker’s development center were “threatened” during interviews with staff to move their tasks for reasons of cost. Opel, contacted by the media, declined to comment on this information.

“There are more and more indications that the next reorganization of Stellantis is not only imminent, but that in certain areas, it is already being implemented illegally without prior information, advice and negotiation with employee representatives,” denounce employee representatives on the works council. They announce that “legal steps have been taken” because “their rights of co-determination have been violated”.

The German press recalls that Stellantis announced last week its intention to separate the two production plants in Rüsselsheim and Eisenach from Opel Automobile GmbH. Both infrastructures may soon no longer belong to Opel and have their own legal and production organizations.

Remember that in August, Stellantis announced that the Rocks-e, Opel’s copy of Citroën’s electric city car AMI, will be manufactured as its twin in the group’s plant in Kénitra.
