Say Opposition Has Gone Unheeded
If you didn't listen to us before...
maybe you'll listen when we walk off our jobs. That's the message
Airbus workers have for management at EADS, who threaten to strike
if the European aerospace consortium fails to listen to their
opposition to the planned sale of four plants.
"If Airbus delays, we will put some pressure on them, with all
of the possible results on the company," Thomson Financial reports
IG Metall spokesman Daniel Friedrich told Focus magazine.
As ANN reported, EADS has
called for the elimination of approximately 10,000 jobs, and the
sale or closure of six plants under its controversial Power8
restructuring plan for the beleaguered planemaker. The plan was
mandated following huge losses EADS incurred last year, as a result
of delays to the Airbus A380 and A350 XWB programs.
Speaking of the A380, the proposed strikes could hit production
lines for the massive plane... a chance Airbus would prefer not to
take, given that the planemaker seems to finally have that program
IG Metall -- the German Metalworkers Union -- opposes the sale
of the plants to any of the companies now bidding for them: Boeing,
Spirit Aerosystems, MT Aerospace, and Breman-based OHB.
