Trnava PSA car plant fighting for a new model, it might have already secured one
The Trnava PSA car plant has already won the production of a new model from the French car maker, and this is apparently a bigger model than its current Peugeot 208 and Citroën C3 models, says the plant’s labor union. It accuses the plant’s management of hiding this information to blackmail the unions in new Collective Agreement negotiations. The management used the cost competitiveness argument when proposing zero basic wage growth for the coming four years. The unions are demanding a €70 hike to monthly salaries every year. The management denied the information about a new model and says the plant is still fighting for it, with the new Collective Agreement having a major impact. The plant has 4,500 workers with last year’s average salary of €1,630.
