Ellesmere Port to move to 3 Shifts by 2011

Thu, 26 Nov 2009

Following the press
conference held on Wednesday afternoon in Ruesselsheim, Germany where Nick
Reilly, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Opel/Vauxhall gave a brief summary of
the discussions that had been held with the European Employee Forum (EEF) in
respect of the Opel/Vauxhall viability business plan, the consultation process
with each individual manufacturing plant in Europe has now begun.  This process will continue over the
next month to finalise details of the forward plan for Opel/Vauxhall across


As a first step in
this consultation process, Ellesmere Port is today advising employees of the
proposals for its future.  The
proposed plan is for Ellesmere Port to move to a three shift production
operation in 2011.


To support the launch
in 2010 of the new Astra Sports Tourer and to prepare for the 3rd shift
introduction in 2011, the plan is for no redundancies as all current labour
would need to be utilised to staff the 3rd shift.


Plant and Trade Union
Senior Leadership will now work together to develop the details of the plan in
order to support the future strategy for Ellesmere Port.
