Magna and the various workers unions have finally come to an agreement about the Opel factory job cuts in Zaragoza, according to the Spain’s industry minister.

Miguel Sebastian, the industry minister, stated that Magna will only cut 900 jobs instead of the initially planned 1,350.

Prior to the agreement, unions have been planning to strike for four days in protest of the Magna plans to buy Opel out from GM. Even with the agreement the unions still need to take a vote among the workers before they are called off which will occur on Friday.

Sebastian declared the deal a success, due to the fact he views it as something that will keep the factory open in Spain for at least another ten years.
