Daimler Slows Mercedes Benz Production
The AP says that Daimler has also announced a reduced work week at the Rastatt plant in southern Germany. Workers there will be facing four-day work weeks and occasional three-day work weeks from January 12 until the end of February. Daimler already expanded their Christmas wokr stoppage for all 14 German production lines. Although production has slowed, the workers have a labor deal that protects them from layoffs until 2011.
